The seeds are high in protein, vitamins, and minerals, and have been a cornerstone of human nutrition for thousands of years. The beans may be eaten fresh and green, or dried for future use. Properly dried beans will keep for three years. Many people enjoy the leaves of the fava plant, preparing them similarly to spinach. Fava’s can fix up to an incredible 200 pounds of nitrogen per acre.
