The plants grow to be between 8 to 16 inches in height and prefer moderate climates. The small round seeds of the lentil plants are enjoyed by many cultures throughout the world. Rich in vitamins, protein and mineral salts, lentils (of all varieties) are every nutritious. Castelluccio lentils are quite different than the other varieties available on the market: the climate and soil of Umbria contribute to their thin skin and soft consistency, allowing for them to be cooked without having soaked first.
