(Phaseolus lunatis) Also known as Large Speckled Lima, 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. 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. Pole habit. 95 days to harvest. 25 seeds/pkt.
CULTURE: After danger of frost has passed, sow seeds 4-6" apart, 1" deep in rows 24-36" apart. Plants require trellising. Under ideal conditions, germination will occur in 7-10 days. Avoid touching plants while leaves are wet as this can spread disease.
Good germination------probably 90%-------They're happily on their way up the trellis------
They all got through kindergarten and are doing well in first grade-----------
Great germination. Nice climbing plants, starting to bloom.
Planted 3 feet from calypso beans from Thresh and had 10 times for plants from these Christmas Limas
