Lentil, common name for an annual herb, native to southwestern Asia and widely cultivated in temperate regions. It is a straggling plant, rarely exceeding about 46 cm (about 18 in) in height, having pinnate leaves terminating in tendrils. It bears small flowers with white, pale blue, or lilac petals. The fruit is a pod containing lens-shaped seeds, also called lentils, of which two varieties,small brown ones and larger yellow ones,are cultivated for table use.

Lentils, known for their high protein content, are used, when fully ripe, in soups and stews. The lentil plant itself is used as fodder.

  • Scientific classification:  The lentil belongs to the subfamily Papilionoideae
  • Family:  Fabaceae (formerly Leguminosae).
  • It is classified as Lens culinaris.
