Reward your taste buds! Young pods can be eaten like snap beans. Pinch off the foliage tips for one of spring's tastiest greens. Best of all, shell the beans and cook when still green for a sweet, flavorful treat. The beautiful white and black flowers on sturdy upright plants make 'Windsor' pretty enough to use in flower beds! Favas are exceptionally cold tolerant (to 10F) and grow best in cool conditions (below 75F). Sturdy 24"-48" tall favas require staking only in high wind areas.
Caution: People deficient in an enzyme called glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) should not handle seeds, consume fava beans, or inhale its pollen.
