Windsor Fava Beans are ancient royalty-worthy legumes that are delicious, nutritious, and versatile. This English variety dates back to 1863, also known as Broad Beans. Perfect for salads, soups, or main dishes, these beans add protein-packed goodness with a nutty, earthy flavor and firm yet tender texture. They can also help improve soil health and control weeds as a ground cover crop. 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.
