How to Grow Fava Broad Windsor Beans

When to Plant Bean Seeds

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.

Where to Plant Bean Seeds

Choose a spot in your garden that has healthy, well-draining soil with full sun

How to Plant Bean Seeds

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 Beans

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.
