Red Lentils from Hertfordshire

Hodmedod's British Pulses & Grains

Please note that our British-grown Red Lentils are no longer available. We are currently only producing whole Olive Green Lentils - why not try those instead?

We grew red lentils as part of our early lentil trials in 2017. While successful the olive green lentils grew and yielded better so we've concentrated on building production of those in 2018 and 2019. We'll look at introducing a wider range of varieties in 2020.

We've been working out how to grow lentils in the UK and this year harvested the first commercial crop following 3 years of crop trial work. These whole red lentils were grown by Tim Gawthroup at Partridge Hill Farm in Hertfordshire.
