(Phaseolus lunatis) Bush-type variety produces excellent yields of small, vibrant pink lima beans splashed with maroon swirls and speckles. Highly-branched plants produce well even during extreme heat. Four-inch pods produce 3-4 beans each. Beans are small and can be used just like any other baby lima or butter bean. 75 days to harvest. 50 seeds/pkt.
CULTURE: After danger of frost has passed, sow seeds 2" apart, 1" deep in rows 24-36" apart. Under ideal conditions, germination will occur in 7-10 days. Avoid touching plants while leaves are wet as this can spread disease.
Germination was weak. about 60%
