Ianto's Fava Bean

1 Review | Write a Review

This large-seeded Guatemalan variety that reaches 6 feet tall was originally introduced by Alan Kapuler of Peace Seeds. The entire fava plant, including leaves, stems, pods, and immature beans, contain levodopa--reported to benefit those at risk for Alzheimer's disease. It appears that the young pod and immature (green) beans inside the pod contain the greatest amount of levodopa, and the mature, or dried bean, contains the least.

This native Mediterranean bean is quite different from ordinary beans. It prefers cool weather, tolerates frost, and can be early fall-sown in Zone 6 and higher. In very cold-winter regions, plant in late winter or early spring. A great plant for improving soil.
