Henderson Bush Lima Bean (68 days, Heirloom)

6 reviews

Heirloom 1889
The most common bush Lima, this is also the earliest and most prolific. It requires more space than bush green beans, but is still remarkably compact. Yield is continuous until frost. Pods and beans are relatively small. Can be dried as well as shelled.                      100 seeds




Outside- Bush type: 1” deep and 4-6” apart with soil temperatures above 60 degrees and after the last frost. Planting under 60 degrees results in poor germination. Pole type: Plant 1” deep and 3- 4” apart for trellis/pole growth. Drying type: 1” deep and 5-6” apart. Leave beans on the plant until the leaves are falling and pods are dry and withered

Harvest- Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually to prolong production.

Tips- Water well during hot dry period and do not over fertilize which results in a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod growth. Adding inoculant at planting time aids in a larger harvest and more robust plants. Plant seeds every 2-3 weeks for continual harvest throughout the summer.

Great little beans!

This is the first time i had ever tried growing lima beans and i have to say i am pleased with how easy it was, and great pod set, too! They also seemed to be much more resilient to pests than the green beans were that i had planted this year!
