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.

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: This tall legume is deep-rooted. Where winter lows stay above 10°F (-12°C) sow in September. Cold climates sow in the spring. Raw seed requires Pea-Vetch or Garden Combination inoculant. Avoid hot weather.

Harvesting & Storage: Long pods are filled with large, edible beans which are popular fresh, dried or pickled. Each 5-6" pod contains 3-5 large, fresh green shell beans.

Reviews

Very robust plants

Tried growing these this year and got great germination and the plants have continued growing all throughout the winter (with a little help from my frost blanket). This spring they grew like crazy and produced loads of beans. Large fleshy pods and since I inoculated at planting, the plants were loaded with nodules on the roots. Beans were very tasty. Will grow again for sure.
