'Small seeded' favas any good to eat?

dirtslinger2(6)January 6, 2011

My local seed source has "small seeded" favas available really cheaply as a cover crop.

Would they be worth growing as a food source?

Thanks!

I enjoy them. They're just a bit more work to peal.

George - if you pick them young you can skip the peeling. I have never bothered to do it.
