Background

Grow Your Own - Broad Beans (Vicia faba)

One of the oldest of cultivated vegetables having been grown in Britain for centuries, it is an annual with stiff quadrangular, hollow stems. The large seeds are white or green, according to variety. Broad beans are grown on almost any soil and while they like moisture, avoid badly drained ground liable to become waterlogged in winter and that which dries out in early summer.
