Growing up to 6 FEET TALL(!), this tasty and surprisingly beautiful variety produces an abundanceof neon-green beans. Fava beans are great for fixing nitrogen and breaking up compacted soil, but most importantly THEY ARE DELICIOUS!Eat them right out of the pod for a surprisingly flavorful snack or cook them up in an endless array of recipes from tasty soups to world-changing falafels! Outrageously underrated as an edible, this humble bean is easy to grow, chock full of nutrients, and tastes best straight from the garden! Plant in a sunny location with plenty of compost and regular water for best bean production. Save some of beans to sow for next year’s crop... if you can resist eating them, that is...
