65 days. These white, small “baby” lima beans
have a delicious flavor, and mature
earlier than most limas. This bush
lima will be loaded with pods — quite
productive! And believe us, the flavor
is not what you remember your mom
feeding you as a kid; fresh lima beans
taste incredible! Can be eaten fresh,
frozen, or dried.
This packet sows one 8-foot row.
Days to Emerge:
When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED.
1 to 2 weeks after average last frost
and when temperatures are warm. Soil
must be warm — greater than 65°F.
To produce beans all season, sow a new
crop every 7 - 14 days up to 60 days
before first fall frost.
NOTE: In very hot summer areas, sow in
March for June harvest, and August for
late September harvest.
When to start inside: Not recommended.
Harvesting: For fresh use, pick the pods when they are bulging but before they begin to turn yellow and dry out. Shell the beans and use immediately or store in the refrigerator for a few days. For dried beans, leave on the vine until the pod and beans are dry and hard.
