One of the tastiest of ALL varieties! Broad Windsor Fava Bean (Vicia faba) yields large, high-protein seeds in 4- to 5-inch, glossy-green pods. Productive plants — up to 4 feet tall — are sturdy and require minimal staking. (75 days)
Each packet contains approximately 25 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Plant directly into rich, fast draining soil in spring after the soil has warmed. Sow 1 inch deep and 2-4 inches apart in rows 18-24 inches apart. Soaking 1-2 hours prior to planting will speed germination. Thin when seedlings emerge so that bush varieties are 5 to 6 inches apart; pole varieties 6 to 8 inches apart.
Pick often to keep plants productive; when harvesting immature pods you encourage new blooms to form. Look for firm, sizable pods and pinch off with your thumbnail and fingers.
