Fava beans: what exactly are they?
Buying Fava beans? You can do it at Vehgro. But what exactly are these green gems? Fava beans are the favourite summer beans of the Netherlands. In July and August they are at their absolute best. This is the ideal moment to enjoy these little vitamin friends.
The beans are the seeds in the pod, you find them in a felt-like and elongated pod. The pod itself is not edible, unlike green beans for example. The beans we sell have already been taken from their pod.
