Fava Bean

Fava Bean 'Statissa"

This Fava Bean is beloved - & for so many good reasons! Its compact stature (28" tall by 12" wide) allows it a place in even the smallest veggie garden & it’s also perfect for a container. Producing early, the fruits can be eaten young as tender pods, or the large beans can be shelled & dried for storage. Also a well-known permaculture plant, it fixes nitrogen in the soil, providing this essential element to prepare your garden for more nutrient-demanding crops (like tomatoes or peppers). One of the easiest vegetables to grow, it’s an excellent choice for beginning gardeners! Plant densely (for support) in well-composted soil.
