The Le Puy Green Lentil is quite famous for its “organoleptic” qualities in France. In fact the French don’t even want the name used by others who attempt to grow this lentil in other regions because they “claim” that they own it!
We are just pointing out that these are authentic Le Puy Lentils from original sources in France. What the French government wants you to call them after you grow them in your own garden is another thing!
Lentils thrive best in rocky shallow soil, ( soils that are too rich promote lots of foliage with lentils but less pod setting!) So poor rocky soils and sightly drier conditions.. that makes for a good lentil producing habitat!
