Robbie Sigona’s Produce Tips: Fava Beans

  • Robbie with Favas1Choose favas with beans that fill up the pod.
  • Select those that are firm, but not too hard.
  • Old favas are typically limp and shriveled up.
  • You’ll want favas that are bright green and fresh looking.
  • Weather- and pest-damaged favas will have a lot of rust and black on them (although a tiny bit is normal).
