(Vicia faba) This beautiful purple fava variety was given to us at a seed conference several years ago and likely comes from the old Abundant Life collection. Tall 4’ vigorous plants produce somewhat irregular length pods with most commonly 3-4 beans/pod. Lighter yielding than our “Aquadulce” but with a superior rich flavor. Excellent raw, as well as sautéed with olive oil, garlic, salt, and a squeeze of lemon. Purple color develops as the bean dries.
