Black Gram - Kali (Certified Organic)
(Vigna mungo): 80 days. A tiny black legume, originating from the Indian subcontinent where it has been cultivated since ancient times and consumed as a staple. Also known as “black lentil” and previously thought of as belonging to the same species as the mung bean. Black Gram is used for dal or made into flour for flat breads. Very nutritious, high in protein, potassium, calcium, iron, and B vitamins. The plant is small and furry with yellow flowers. Will mature in cooler climates but yields are lower than common dry beans. This variety was sourced from Kathmandu Valley in Nepal by Anpetu Oihankesni of Sourcepoint Organic Seeds. Packets are ¼ ounce and contain ~120 seeds.
