Witkiem Manita Broad Bean

[65 days] The earliest spring-sown broad bean on the market, Witkiem manita is the go-to variety for anyone who missed the window for fall planting. It has a spectacular cold tolerance, a great taste, and is a great for storage. The stalks provide numerous short pods, each containing 4-5 juicy white beans.

You can plant it as early as February and harvest as early as June. If you’re a huge fava (broad bean) fan like I am, successional sowings through May will keep you in fava bean heaven for the entire year.

Height: 100cm (39”). Spread: 45cm (18”).
