"Negreta," a fava variety originating from either Italy or Spain, yields large green pods with large beans that mature to a dark, imperial purple shade. The beans are not only visually striking, they also mature up to 10 days faster than the Broad Windsor.
Fava beans are an annual crop that will produce harvestable beans within 70 days when spring sown and 240 days when fall sown under ideal conditions.
Stock availability update: We had a crop failure with this one in 2020. Aiming to have this variety back in stock in July 2021.
