This extra early variety produces long pods that are filled with 6 large beans that are a pretty purple color and are sweet tasting. A unique and colorful variety from Italy.

Review:

Grew these in my winter raised beds. They were productive and were not infested with aphids like others I planted. These are my new favorite favas. I saved some seeds and they were a beautiful shade of violet! Going to grow them again in the spring. Bonus- the flowers are great in a salad.

Review:

I bought these and live in the South. I knew it was a gamble but put the seeds in the freezer for two weeks, then let them come to room temperature and after soaked for two hours. Planted and bam...beautiful flowers (white with black spots). The Fava beans were wonderful and also found out the leaves are edible. This is such a pretty plant that I'm growing in my front yard to see how they will do through the summer. So far coming up fine.

Review:

I direct sowed these in a raised bed in late winter, here in a warm climate. They almost all germinated (90% ) and grew to maturity without any trouble in about 10-12 weeks. I did not experience any aphid problems, which may be because I got them in early. Each plant grew 3-5 stems, each of which had 4-8 pods, plated with about a 5 inch spacing. The plants only grew to about 2 feet and required no support. I ate some young pods whole and left others to ripen. Both were tasty, with a pleasant nutty bitterness to them. I did not try to save seeds (too greedy!) so can't report about the color. I expect I'll be growing this again as it was trouble free, productive, and its compact size will make it easy to fit in around other plants.

Review:

I have planted these Favas three years running, in unpredictable Connecticut weather, with damp soil and ice in the ground and each year we have had early, strong, delicious Favas. The fruit is so delicious that we eat them from the pod. Sweet, nutty, great texture. When the plants are done, I chop them up and work them into the soil for the great nutrients they have. Thank you for making this variety available.
