The broad bean is a legume native to the Middle East that soon spread throughout the Mediterranean basin.

Broad beans are planted during the autumn and winter months, having a large cultivation margin that will allow us to stagger sowing beans and thus enjoy them for much longer.

Before sowing, the seeds need to be soaked for a day so that once sown their germination is easier. We will sow the seeds directly in a 50 x 50 cm planting frame.

Make sure the soil where you are going to grow the beans has good drainage and receives a few hours of sun.

Planting in Pots:
Broad beans are a typical autumn crop, they are very productive and do not require special care. Only, like peas, it requires a minimum pot size of about 30 cm in diameter and at least 25 cm deep. In spring, it will surprise us with its multiple pods full of delicious beans.

It is very important to leave a margin of about 30 – 35 centimeters between each plant.

 SOWING:
Make holes no deeper than 3 times the size of the seed and insert three beans. In this way we will ensure that some of the seeds germinate. If all three germinate, we will choose the healthiest and strongest plant,
removing the other two.

GERMINATION:

The time it takes for a broad bean seed to germinate can depend on several factors, such as environmental conditions, seed quality, and germination method. Under ideal conditions, fava beans generally germinate in about 7 to 14 days.

Here are some general tips for sprouting broad beans:

  1. Temperature: Broad beans tend to germinate best at cooler temperatures, around 15-20 degrees Celsius.

  2. Soil: Use a well-drained, nutrient-rich substrate to plant the seeds. The soil should be kept moist but not soggy.

  3. Planting depth: Plant the seeds at a depth of approximately 5-10 centimeters into the soil.

  4. Humidity: Keep the substrate evenly moist during the germination period. You can cover the seeds with clear plastic to retain moisture.

  5. Light: Broad beans do not need light to germinate, but once they have sprouted, they need light to grow properly.


IRRIGATION: It needs continuous but short watering, it is important to have the soil moist, but without excesses.

We will avoid flooding at all costs. Another very useful tip is to water the soil directly, let's not make the mistake of watering from above, soaking the entire plant with water.

PASS:
They do not require a special subscriber. You won't need to worry about your soil being poor in nutrients.

HARVEST:
The harvest will take place 90 to 120 days after sowing and you should not leave them in the pods for a long time, as they harden and lose flavor.

Its favorable crop associations are:

lettuce, celery and potatoes.

And, on the contrary, they harm him:

beans, peas, onions, leeks and garlic.
