Product Description

The Egyptian Fava bean is a short pod type Broad Bean that has quite small plants that bear small pods profusely, the small beans inside the pods are a light green/brown drying to a light tan brown colour. Although nice as a fresh bean, they are best if left to dry out fully. However, they do produce well and require little attention – so it’s not too hard to get value out of them. The plants do seem to handle dry and even hot weather very well compared with most other Broad beans.
