Share

Vicia faba are best known as fava beans or broad beans, and ‘Petite du Lac’ probably refers to the Lac St. Jean area in Quebec. Mediterranean in origin, they were brought to Quebec and North America by European settlers and grown where it was too cool to grow common beans. Fresh or dried, fava beans have traditionally been used to make soup. Seed outside in May. Produces tender, fleshy green beans after 75 days. This is a cool weather plant!
