Bean, Lima/Bush - Henderson


$299 USD
Title

The Henderson Lima Bean is an old heirloom with a reputation for easy growth and high yields of small, but plump pods and beans. This is one bean that requires higher temperatures for best production. Raw beans are toxic, so enjoy its smooth, creamy, buttery flavor after cooking, either shelled or dried. This compact bush-type plant spreads wider than green beans, so give them room to grow.

  • Easy to grow
  • Bush growth habit
  • Heat loving
  • Superb flavor
