Lentils: Classes, types and varieties


Lentils are designated into two classes, Lentils, Red and Lentils, other than Red. The method of determining the class of a lentil is by cotyledon colour.


Lentil varieties may have a wide range of seed coat colours from green, red, speckled green, black and tan. The cotyledon color may be red, yellow or green.
