Gardener's Notes: Fava beans are a cool season crop and prefer a moist, cool soil to grow best. Plant in very early spring, or in mild winter climates, sow as a fall crop to over winter and bear pods in spring. Plant fava beans 1 inch deep and 6 inches apart. The plants are not harmed by light frost.  The 1 inch side, 5 inch to 8 inch long pods contain 5 to 6 large beans.
