I grow these because they are beautiful seeds.  I don’t eat them- I grow them to fix nitrogen in the soil- Favas are some of the best nitrogen fixers- and to delight in harvesting these stunning dark black and some tinged with purple seeds.   Limited quantities for 2021.  Original seed from Irish Seed Savers Association.

 

Rare: Packet contains ~15 seeds
