Here is the Windsor Fava Bean, Vicia faba. This broad bean variety goes way back to the 1860's and was a very popular variety. The Windsor variety Tolerates the cold extremely well and will seed on second year if left out. Plants can get to 3 feet tall and get quite bushy. The beans, with the outer seed coat removed, can be eaten raw or cooked. In young plants, the outer seed coat can be eaten, and in very young plants! We would always recommend you cook your beans before you eat them. Great variety for your fall planting! Open pollinated 40 to 85 days.

  • GERMINATION INFO

    Culture: Legumes have moderate fertility needs. Go easy on the nitrogen. Excessive nitrogen may induce some varieties to develop vines in moist hot weather. Tender, will not survive frost. Plant 3–4 seeds/ft. in rows 24–30" apart. Pick frequently for maximum yields, but avoid disturbing foliage in wet weather to prevent spread of fungal diseases. White-seeded beans usually don’t germinate as well as dark-seeded. Minimum germination soil temperature 60°. Optimal range 60–80°. Optimal temperature 77°. Emergence takes 16 days at 59°; only 8 days at 77°. Produce 97% normal seedlings at 77°, but only 47% at 86°.
