What are the pros? Tasty beans, vigorous growth
What are the cons? Bit large for small gardens
I planted these in Fall as a winter cover crop. They germinated well, and did great under permeable row cover here in Zone 8. We had a fairly mild winter, with LOTS of rain, and the plants thrived, even thru frost. As others have mentioned, black aphids just love these plants, I was horrified by the number of them, but the favas didn't seem to care! I only harvested a few beans, which were delicious, but sadly had to plow them under before they really got going, as I have a very small garden space. Will grow again this winter and make room for them to produce thru early summer!
