Am a little confused as to why my order for red lentil seeds are brown. This is the second batch I’ve ordered and they sprout beautifully, but I don’t understand why they are advertised and photos are red seeds.
I have some in the sprouter now! Can't wait to taste them!
I should have listened to what I read in my sprouting books about red lentils instead of believing these reviews on here. Apparently the reviewers on here have never sprouted green lentils. If they had, they would be just as disappointed with these red lentils as I am. My sprouting books both say red lentils do not sprout well. And that is EXACTLY what I have discovered. They sprout extremely poorly compared to green lentils. And they don't taste as good as green lentils either--but I could live with that part. I've been sprouting green lentils for quite awhile. I would have ordered green lentils from Todd's if they had them, but they don't carry them. I even ask them if they could get them and they said, "no." Todd's red lentil price was SO much lower than where I was getting my organic green lentils from I decided to give these red lentils a try AFTER reading the reviews on here. BIG MISTAKE. And the bigger mistake I made was buying 10 lbs. of them! UGH! By the way, Todd's mung beans sprout just fine. I'm not sorry I bought 10 lbs. of them. P.S. Hey Robert or Rochelle, I'll give you a great deal on 9 1/2 lbs. of red lentils since you like them so well. I'd love to get rid of them.
Sprout quickly and are better than 90% plus they taste great.
I love lentils.... these are great tasting .... quick to sprout.... kids love them, I love them.... even the cat and dog love them.... Folks at Todd's are great to deal with... had questions and they were knowledgeable and just plain nice to speak with.... fast shipping... got my seeds in just a couple of days...
Taste is fabulous. Nice crunchy texture.
