Who doesn't love fava beans? These royalty-worthy legumes have been grown since ancient times and are still going strong today. And there's no wonder why - they're delicious, nutritious, and versatile. This old English variety dates back to 1863. Also known as Broad Beans. Whether you're looking to add some protein-packed goodness to your salads or soups, or wanting to try something new in your main dishes, Windsor Fava Beans are the perfect choice. Nutty and earthy in flavor, with a firm yet tender texture, these beans will elevate any dish. The possibilities are endless with this delicious and healthy legume! The Windsor Fava Bean has been also been used for centuries as a ground cover crop. Fava beans are known for their ability to improve soil health by adding nitrogen and other nutrients, and they also help control weeds. 22g ~ 15 seeds.

Plant seeds directly in the garden starting 3-5 weeks before average last frost date or as soon as the soil can be worked. Favas can be planted usually at the same time as peas. In climates where winters remain above 10°F, can also be planted late-summer to early-fall. Pinching back the upper part of the plant as the initial pods emerge typically results in beans of higher quality that are more consistently uniform. For dried beans, harvest a few weeks after normal picking time when the pods are thick, well-filled and dry. Can also be used for cover cropping.
