(10 Seeds) Broad Windsor fava beans are a Mediterranean heirloom that can be planted early, just after the last frost. Pods on the tall bushy plant range from 5" to 8" and contain quarter-sized beans that are delicious when dried and eaten as shell beans. In addition to their freshness, young leaves make excellent spring greens.

Growing Instructions:
Since fava bean seeds prefer cool temperatures and can survive temperatures down to 15F, plant the heirloom bean seeds very early in spring as soon as the ground can be worked. These plants do not do well in heat, so some gardeners in warmer regions plant them in the fall for a late winter crop, overwinter them, and get another crop in early spring. Place the fava bean seeds 1.5" deep in the ground and about 6" apart, in rows about 1-3' apart. This plant can thrive in poor soil, so no fertilization is necessary. Germination usually takes place in 7-15 days.
