90 days — ''Aquadulce' fava beans can withstand very cold conditions (down to about 15ºF) allowing them to be sown in the fall for spring harvest. 'Aquadulce' is a variety that is primarily grown for early crops. The plants can reach thirty-six to forty inches in height. Each packet contains two ounces, which is approximately 32 seeds.
Came right up grew wonderful.
All the plants came right up grew wonderful. The cold did not slow them down. We did have a really cold snap that killed them, about 10 degrees did them in. This winter is much colder than the norm here. I still have some seeds to start up here about the first of march so I cant wait to give them another go. I figured the winter would kill them but it was worth a shot.

These didn't like our high altitude southwest climate
These fava beans were planted in late March2021 in a high altitude, dry climate with large daily temperature swings. They were slow to sprout, slow to grow, had some sort of black mildew on the flowers & top leaves, and produced empty pods at first. When our monsoon season kicked in during July, they thrived and produced many pods. I originally chose them because, as a vetch (not a true bean), they could be companion planted with brassicas and onions- what a great nitrogen fixing solution! But, the high desert strikes again. I may try planting them in the fall for an early spring harvest. Otherwise, desert gardneners, I might avoid this variety/plant all together.
