HOW TO GROW FAVA BEAN

Favas are hardy annuals, tolerating frost but not prolonged freezes. In mild climates zone 7 or higher, sow 3 weeks before the first hard killing frost for spring harvest. Favas grown in zone 6 and below should be planted only in the spring. Also sow in early Spring for Fall harvest, February to early April, germination takes longer.
