Rating:
85% of 100

120-135 Days. This fabulous fava is delightful when harvested in green stage and equally exquisite as a dried fava. You’ll love these massive beans borne on impressive 6-foot-tall plants. Makes a perfectly light, nutty-flavored hummus. Introduced by renowned plant breeder Alan Kaupler of Peace Seeds, this variety was selected from seeds of Guatemalan origin. Don’t forget to eat the greens! They are tender and tasty when young. This variety also produces masses of organic matter, making it a top choice for soil improvement as a green manure.
