Shipping Information & Notes

Growing Information

Beans, Fava

CULTURE: Unlike most beans, fava beans prefer cool weather and are best planted in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked. Sow 1" deep, 4-6" apart, in rows 18-36" apart or use wide-bed style planting, giving each plant 1 sq.ft. of space. Where winter lows stay above 10°F (-12°C) sow in August through September. Inoculants can increase yields.
DISEASES AND PESTS: The primary disorder responsible for leaf and pod blackening and spotting is a virus spread by aphids. The disease is most prevalent in hot weather, above 80°F (27°C).
HARVEST: Pick individual pods when the green shell beans inside are plump. For dry beans, wait until pods are dry before harvest.
AVG. SEEDING RATE: 1 lb./90', 11 lb./1,000', 160 lb./acre at 3' row spacing.
50 seeds sows 17'.
