Fava bean pods are thick and spongy, containing 2 to 7 large, flat, bright green beans. While the pods are inedible, the beans are tender and sweet with a buttery pea flavor and are similar in shape to a lima bean. They have a tough outer skin that needs to be peeled away after the beans are shelled. Their texture can range from starchy to creamy depending on how they are prepared. The young leaves, shoots and flowers of the plant are all edible.
Fava beans are available year-round with a peak season in spring.

It prefers a cool moist climate and is even tolerant to a light frost, unlike the common string bean that thrives in the heat of long summer days.
