Aquadulce

Vicia faba


Aquadulce
Seed #426
Sweet and tasty broad beans or fava beans are a staple of Mediterranean cuisine. When harvested very young, the whole pod can be cooked and eaten. With later harvests, the beans must be shelled. Young leaf shoots can be cooked as well. There are typically 5-8 beans per pod. Fall plantings will survive the winter and produce good spring yields. This hardy plant is a good nitrogen fixer and can be used as a green manure.
