Black Russian Fava Bean
65 days to maturity for fresh beans, 85 for dry bean.
I grow these because they are beautiful seeds. I keep a few in my pockets for good luck and place them on my seasonal alters. This Fava reminds me that sometimes I need to hold a seed in my hand to be reminded of the symbol of abundance that they embody. I also 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
