Price includes tax.

BROAD BEANS
Crimson Flowered Favas (1778) - Rare

Three-foot tall stalks produce 6" long smooth pods with smaller fava beans inside. These succulent beans melt in your mouth if cooked at a rolling boil for ten minutes- exactly! Bright-crimson flowers along sturdy stalks in spring always catch admiring comments. Sow in February/March and harvest fresh beans in June/July/August, dried beans later. Beans freeze well too. You can sow in November, but may have to reseed many that rot. Favas are leguminous plants, which improve soil because they add nitrogen

This is a strain of fava bean originating from the UK, which dates back to 1778! This was before plant breeders bred for the black and white flowers we see today. Thanks to Mrs. Cutbush from Kent these seeds have survived by being handed down through many generations of gardeners. At age 90, Mrs. Cutbush gave some of these precious seeds to the Henry DoubleDay Research Association Seed Library, from where I received a packet. I have grown these beans ever since and am pleased to make them available to you. When we grow out these heirloom varieties we make sure they don't become extinct to future generations of gardeners.

Best dug only as needed, as they discolor and lose flavor fast. Cover fresh roots with lemon juice or vinegar to avoid discoloration. Scrub the roots before cooking, but do not peel; the skin contributes flavor and vitamins. A good source of calcium, iron, and phosphorus.

Scorzonera is used to make mock oyster soup or chowder. Also good steamed and served with butter or special sauces, fried, baked or braised and in stews, soups, soufflés and quiches. Can dig what you need for winter and store in damp sand in a root cellar. They do not can or freeze well.
