A delicious baby lima bean that is very productive. Butter peas are red-speckled with a deep purple color. Bush plants grow well in hot weather. (76 days)
Each packet contains approximately 10o seeds.
Sow beans 1 to 2 inches deep when danger of frost is past. Soaking seeds 1 to 2 hours before planting will speed germination. Beans will rot if soil is too cold or very damp. Sow bush-types 6 to 12 inches apart in beds, pole-types 6 inches apart in rows. Provide support for poll-types.
Harvest for snaps when pods are good sized; keep snaps well picked, as production slows as seed matures. All varieties of strings will develop in over-mature pods.
