Sweet Lorane fava beans seeds

Price for Package of 15-20 (10g) seeds.

Small seeded favas are usually relegated to cover crop status, but Sweet Lorane was selected to have a good, sweet flavor, so it’s an excellent choice for a dual-purpose crop to feed both the soil and the gardener. 

The flavor is excellent and is especially delicious in fava hummus. Usually sown in autumn for cover cropping and for higher yields, favas may also be spring sown. Extremely winter hardy – we have seen this variety muster through winter temps of 0°F with only a few inches of snow for protection. 

When grown as a dry bean, Sweet Lorane is less prone to splitting during harvest and processing than the larger seeded types.
