Description
Sweet Lorane
100 days — 'Sweet Lorane' was originally bred and released sometime in the early 1980s by Steve Soloman, founder of the Territorial Seed Company.  He named it after the location of his farm in Lorane, Oregon.

While developing the variety, he selected for a lighter colored seed coat and lower tannin levels.  This made them less bitter and therefore more edible. It has a great flavor - tasting almost like chickpeas when fresh - and excellent as a dry bean cooked in soups and stews.  It can also be cooked, mashed or made into a puree and mixed with a little olive oil and garlic.  Chopped jalapeno can be added for texture and flavor.

A small-seeded fava variety, it is a great nitrogen fixer and can be used for cover cropping to improve your garden's soil, when planted in the fall. It is also a very cold hardy variety.  The farmer that grows these for us has been raising them since 1990 and continues to select for the lighter seed coat and taste traits.  He also happens to be an OTCO farm.

Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 48 seeds.
