FREE SHIPPING in the contiguous 48 United States

An especially good butterbean! Jackson Wonder Lima Bean (Phaseolus lunatus) produces heavy yields on compact, 18- to 24-inch tall plants. Dark green, 3-inch pods contain purple-brown speckled seeds with a mild nutty flavor. Heat and drought tolerant. (75 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.
