Christmas Lima Bean is a fun vining bean option that produces heavy yields of quarter-sized, white lima beans splashed with maroon swirls and speckles. Plants grow vigorously to 10 ft and yield well even in extreme heat and fun fact, lima beans can actually be perennial in our tropical climate. Beans are produced 2-3 per pod and are a delight to shell, like opening a Christmas present. Markings hold well in storage and are even retained after cooking. Delicious chestnut-like flavor complimented by a rich potato-like texture. Excellent bean all-around that can be harvested while the pod is green for fresh eating or left to dry on the vine and shelled for use as a dry bean. Beans are a great plant for beginner gardeners just make sure you anticipate its quick growth up a trellis and make sure they have something sturdy to climb, not just a bamboo stick or two! Direct seed these large bean seeds around the base of whatever they are supposed to climb and they will germinate in a few days.
