Sweet Lorane Fava Bean

1 Review | Write a Review
100 days. An exceptional feat in natural plant breeding, this small-seeded fava is extremely cold hardy and well adapted to being grown as a winter cover crop but boasts the flavor and size of an eating fava. A perfect combination-- especially for the home gardener. Now we can have our cover crops and eat them, too! The flavor is much less tannic than cover crop favas and tastes like a chickpea when eaten fresh!

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Lodging


Grew these for fun /cover crop planted in the fall, they were mostly done by the 4th of July. Did not eat. Some I just poked in the lawn.they got 3 feet high with single stem and didn’t produce well because of to much shade. Some in the garden bed got 5 ft high with multi stems and produced well 8-12 pods per stem . In rich soil they got 6 ft tall and fell over. Still productive. Easy to grow. Something ate some leaves but they were not greatly affected. I grew a few lbs and will definitely replant in the fall.
