Bean - Fava Broad Windsor - Vicia faba

Hardy Annual Pole. Pod. Heirloom. This is the classic, large-seeded English fava with strong, upright plants bearing 4-7 very large, tender, light-green seeds for fresh shelling. The mature, light-brown seeds are excellent in soups and hummus.

Soil & Water: Legumes like well-drained soil rich in organic matter with a moderate amount of nutrients. Water lightly at planting, moderately at flowering, and heavily throughout harvest time. Avoid overhead watering.

Planting & Growing: Start indoors in short-season climates. Use fiber pots or soil blocks because beans do not like to be transplanted. In other climates beans prefer to be seeded directly once soils have reached at least 65°F after the last frost. Make small, successive plantings every 10 days for a continuous harvest.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest just as the beans reach pencil thickness, if they are allowed to get larger the become tough. These beans can be eaten fresh, canned or frozen.

Did You Know? Plant pole beans at the northern end of your vegetable bed or garden to keep the tall vines from shading out other vegetables and herbs.
