Frog Island Purple Fava Bean – Vicia faba
The favorite of our 2016 International Year of Pulses trials, this stately variety produces pretty pods with an average of 3-4 beans per pod. Purple color develops as beans dry. Excellent cover crop and nitrogen fixer. OP. 80 days.
Directions: Direct seed 6″ apart in spring/early summer for fresh eating, or thicker in spring/late summer for cover crop. Will winter kill.
