Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Crimson Flowered Fava Bean Seed
Crimson Flowered Fava (75 days)
Dating from around 1778 this crimson colored wonder is not only tasty as a bean, but you can eat the flowers and leaves in salads. Imagine these fantastic colors in your salad at the next dinner party! Plants are much shorter than most favas making this an excellent fava for small gardens or borders.
Eat the beans when young as a green bean or dried in soups.
Favas add tons of fantastic nitrogen to your soil without the use of nasty chemical fertilizers. Plant them in the fall, enjoy great profusion of crimson color, but chop them into the soil before they produce a bean for maximum nitrogen fixing. That's it! Now you're ready to plant your hungry nitrogen plants like corn come summer!
Extremely rare. Once they are out of stock we will have no more until the following year.
