  • Planting Instructions

    When to Plant:

    • Fava beans are not true beans - they are actually related to vetch. Because of this, the plants will not produce beans in the hot Summer heat.
    • If your winter is mild, you can plant the seeds in the Fall for a Winter or Spring crop.
    • You can plant Fava bean seeds in the Spring after danger of frost has passed in any region.

    How to Plant:

    • Plant your bean seeds about 1 ½  inches deep in well-drained, healthy soil.
    • Cover the seeds with soil and lightly water the area.
    • You can add legume inoculants to the soil when planting the seeds for a better product.
    • The plants tend to be bushy and can grow between 2 and 6 feet tall.
    • Because of this, you’ll want to plant the seeds between 4 and 6 inches apart.

    How to Harvest:

    • Harvest your fava beans when you notice the pods are bright green, but have turned plump.

    The leaves of fava bean bushes are also edible, and they make a nutty and sweet addition to salads.
