Fava beans are the edible seeds of the legume crop Vicia faba, otherwise known as faba beans, horse beans, or broad beans. The seeds are around 2 to 3 cm long and occur in various colors, including yellow, green, brown, black, and even violet. Regardless of the name and color, these pulses are consumed by humans worldwide, although the majority of fava crops are a key source of livestock feed. The size of fava beans determines their purpose – large seeds are normally used for human food, while small and medium-sized seeds are mostly used for animal feed. 'Broad Windsor' is a classic heirloom that's productive, widely adapted, and delicious!
