Delicious fresh or dried! Dixie Speckled Butter Pea (Phaseolus lunatus) is a productive baby lima bean with attractive red and purple specks. Bush plants grow up to 3-feet tall and thrive in hot weather. (76 days)

Each packet contains approximately 100 seeds.

Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Plant directly into rich, fast draining soil in spring after the soil has warmed. Sow 1 inch deep and 2-4 inches apart in rows 18-24 inches apart. Soaking 1-2 hours prior to planting will speed germination. Thin when seedlings emerge so that bush varieties are 5 to 6 inches apart; pole varieties 6 to 8 inches apart.

Pick often to keep plants productive; when harvesting immature pods you encourage new blossoms to form. Look for firm, sizable pods and pinch off with your thumbnail and fingers.
