Southern Exposure Seed Exchange

DISCOUNTED - FROM 2020-21 GROWING SEASON - We believe in the longer viability of these seeds so we want to offer our older stock at a big discount to gardeners that are willing to give these seeds a chance!

Big meaty fava beans for all sorts of yummy recipes. The plants grow 2-3 feet tall plants and produce 1 in. wide, 6-8 inch long pods containing 5-6 large beans. We love to substitute this bean for chickpeas in hummus. Because they can get really heavy as they get laden with pods, the do tend to want fall over. Using t-posts or poles at the ends of the rows and stringing them up would be beneficial. Along with its uses in recipes, it is also a good, nitrogen fixing cover crop.
