Delicious. No garden is complete without Buttery Fava Beans.
Broad Windsor was listed in 1863. This fava's glossy green pods contain 5-7 oblong, flat, beans.
Popular in European gardens, Broad Windsor is one of the tastiest of all dried beans and one of the largest-the size of a quarter! When eaten at the shelling stage, you'll discover why their mild flavor makes them perfect partners with many spices and herbs. Great for Falafels. The sturdy bushes stand 4 feet tall, produce 4-5 inch pods, and are reliably hardy to 12°F.
Fava’s can fix up to an incredible 200 pounds of nitrogen per acre. "Sixty pounds of nitrogen per acre is enough to feed a succeeding crop of beets, carrots, etc. One-hundred pounds will feed corn, lettuce, or squash. Fava's two-hundred pounds of nitrogen per acre is sufficient to grow the heaviest feeders--the Brassica’s."
Excellent for canning, freezing or drying.
