Product Description

Long pods, growing to 25cm, which contain seeds that are commonly referred to as "beans". Beans are used fresh or dried. Young beans can be eaten raw in salads, old beans are cooked as a vegetable. Excellent flavour. Broad beans are also known as "Fava beans”. Broad beans are best sown directly into the garden bed. Water seeds after sowing and then not until germination to prevent the seeds from rotting. Broad beans grow to 0.5-1.7m tall and are need support with posts and string. Pick frequently to encourage more pods. Germination rates are slower in cooler weather.
