Vicia faba

 

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
