110 days — 'Midnight' lentils are known for their dark, shiny black color and exceptional flavor. They are used to make a beautiful black lentil soup in South Asia. 'Midnight' lentils are small with a mild, earthly flavor and soft texture.
 
Lentils are one of the most ancient of all cultivated foods but rarely grown by modern gardeners. Archaeologists have found lentil seeds dating to the Bronze Age. Lentils are grown in most European countries, Asia, North Africa and North America. Small lentils tend to be more flavorful and are preferred in the Middle East.

Lentils belongs to the protein rich legume family. The lentil's high protein content is said to be more easily digested than that of larger beans. They are also high in iron. Additionally, when you consider the nutritional superiority of lentils over a staple like pasta, you might want to serve them instead. Compared with spaghetti, lentils supply much more folate (folic acid), which reportedly fights heart disease. They have considerably more fiber (about 25% of which is the soluble form, and helps to lower cholesterol); and more protein. Lentils make a fine side dish and an excellent basis for salads and hearty soups. Each 0.25 ounce is approximately 250 seeds.
