Broad Bean

Vicia faba

Easy-to-grow, cool-season crop whose green pods, or white or green beans make a great ingredient for soups, stews and salads.

Grows best in temperatures ranging from 60° to 65°F (15-18°C) but will tolerate a range from 40°F (4.4°C) - 75°F (24°C).

Can be grown in containers but need a lot of space.

After harvest they can be frozen, canned or dried for storage.
