ADDITIONAL PLANT INFORMATION
The fava bean is not a true bean, but rather a member of the vetch family. As a nitrogen fixer, it's often used as a cover crop, but doesn't have to be. Grow a few plants for food and beauty. Favas can germinate in temps as low as 35 degrees, but will pop up more quickly in warmer soil. They like full sun, moderate water, cool weather, and well-drained soil. Use the tasty leaves as a substitute for spinach. Plants may need staking when pods mature.
