This cool season annual legume is also known as Broad bean and Fava bean.
Faba Beans are a bushy, hardy annual with a coarse stem that can grow up to 1.2m in height. They produce large amounts of biomass – making this a popular cool-season green manure crop.
Like most legumes, Fava bean plants are nitrogen fixers, and they replenish the soil with this vital nutrient.
