Sold Out - $4.95
NOTE: We are sold out of this seed but a new seed crop is now in production! Barring any unexpected failures, we anticipate this returning to the catalog this coming July 2019.
We'll get right to it: the real story of this fava bean (Vicia faba) variety are its crimson flowered blossoms, which sets it apart from all white flowered varieties we've grown. The blossoms attract a variety of beneficial insects including sphinx moths. The fast growing, stout plants require minimal support and the blooming period makes this an attractive nitrogen fixing cover crop. Beans mature to a deep rich green. We are proud to offer this unique and hard to find fava bean in our catalog!
Beans in 90 days when spring sown, 160 days when fall sown. Annual.
