Paso Robles, CA
What are the pros? Easy to grow, long producer
What are the cons? Heat kills it
I started growing Fava's last winter. They do well in Central California until the summer, so plant them early. I usually plant the Windsor Fava bean between October and November and then again in January, depending on the December temperatures. This year was a particularly cold December for California and I lost about half of my Fava's. The survivors are already a foot high. I have since filled in the holes with more seeds. They should start producing by April and should last until July. If we have a cool May they may last longer. In any case my green beans will be producing by then so it will be a trade.
