Speckled Calico Pole Lima (80 days, Heirloom)

Germ 7-18 days

A pole Lima bean in a new color scheme, Speckled Calico features large red and white beans, about the size of a quarter. The delicious buttery flavor is retained after freezing, so you’ll want a large crop of this one. 50 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.
