Produces Large Beans for Shelling

Bean - Fava Broad Windsor - Vicia faba

Hardy Annual Bush. Heirloom. This is the classic, large-seeded English fava with strong, upright plants bearing 3-5 very large, tender, light-green seeds for fresh shelling. The mature, light-brown seeds are excellent in soups and hummus.

Did You Know? Also called Horse or Broad bean, the Fava is not really a bean at all, but a member of the pea-vetch family.
