Vicia faba (Fava beans vegetable)
Vicia faba - Fava beans are one of the oldest plants under cultivation, and they were eaten in ancient Greece and Rome. Fava beans are a member of the pea family, though they are also known as broad beans, pigeon beans, horse beans, and windsor beans. When intended for consumption, fava beans are planted in February and March to mature through the summer, with their peak coming in July. The beans grow on bushy plants with tapering leaves, yielding anywhere from 25 to 50 pods per plant. The pods resemble pea pods in shape, although they are much larger and lined with a pillowy white material that protects the seeds inside. The outer peel on the beans, while technically edible, is very woody in texture and detracts from the buttery feel of the inner bean. Family: Fabaceae
