• Heirloom Organic Fava Bean Seeds

Vicia faba, also known as the broad bean, fava bean, faba bean, field bean, bell bean, English bean, horse bean, Windsor bean, pigeon bean and tic(k) bean, is a species of flowering plant in the vetch and pea family Fabaceae. The origin of this legume is obscure, but it had been cultivated in the Middle East for 8,000 years before it spread to Western Europe.[1] Fava beans have been found in the earliest human settlements.

The broad bean has high plant hardiness; it can withstand harsh and cold climates.

Stiffly erect plant 0.5–1.8 m tall, with stout stems of a square cross-section. The leaves are 10–25 cm long, pinnate with 2–7 leaflets, and of a distinct  grey-green color. Unlike most other vetches, the leaves do not have tendrils for climbing over other vegetation.
