Not the true lentil (Lens culinaris) but rather the species Lathyrus sativus, sometimes called the Grass Pea. Lathyrus is commonly grown in drought prone regions of southern Asia and northern Africa as an insurance crop, one that will dependably produce something even in the worst years. These drought tolerant plants climb up to waist high with tendrils. Plant densely for the plants to self-support themselves. They have blue flowers and a slightly vetch-like appearance. Seeds are angular, grey in colour and larger than true lentils. 60 seeds (10 g)
