Fava Beans are also known as Broad Beans. They are a wonderful source of protein and carbohydrates. They should be removed from their pod once picked, unless the pod is young and tender. Fava beans are one of the oldest plants under cultivation, having been grown in ancient Greece and Rome. Unlike other beans, they prefer cool weather, allowing them to be planted — and harvested — much earlier. Also known as broad beans, they are popular in Mediterranean cuisine, with many summer dishes celebrating the seasonal bean. They can also be dried for winter use. Fava beans have a distinct flavor and creamy texture that make them a fine ingredient for a wide variety of dishes.
Vroma Fava 25 Open Pollinated Seeds
Vroma Fava Beans are sturdy, upright plants with improved heat tolerance. Vroma produces large, 6 and 1/2 to 7 inch pods with 4 to 5 large seeds. They cook like a shell bean when the seeds are pale green. Dry beans are light brown. More heat tolerant and much less prone to being blown over than Broad Windsor. Harvest in about 75 days. (This is not an heirloom seed. We only carry two types of fava beans so we put them all on this page.)
Windsor Fava Bean 25 Heirloom Seed
Windsor Fava Bean is an "Old World" bean that is gaining popularity in the U.S. The demand for Fava beans has been growing due to their nutritional value, creating a niche product opportunity for market growers.
