“Negreta,” a fava variety originating from either Italy or Spain, yields large green pods with large beans that mature to a dark, imperial purple shade. The beans are not only visually striking, they also mature up to 10 days faster than the Broad Windsor. We are happy to resurrect this classic variety, stewarded for two years at Mano Farm in Ojai, California and now available in our catalog in certified organic form.
70 days spring sown, 240 days fall sown. Annual.
