2. How are they grown?

Berry green lentils up until harvest…

  • Sowing takes place in March
  • Flowering occurs in May and June; their little white flowers are streaked with violet
  • Pods appear at the end of June with just one or two lentils per pod !
  • A combine harvester harvests the lentils in mid-July, just like cereal crops
  • The lentils are sorted during the summer
  • Mid-September: the new harvest is taken to market; this is one of the obligations that come with Label Rouge and PGI certification. Satisfaction guaranteed!
