A delicious, heirloom lima saved for generations in Alabama. Can be used as a dry bean or as a green shell bean or butterbean.  Technically a lima bean, but commonly called butterbean in the South.   Requires a strong trellis as the vines are vigorous and tall.  Very productive in hot summers.  Tolerates drought well.  Extremely hard to find.  90-100 days.  

This crop can be direct seeded into warm soil after the last spring frost. If you sow a section or row every two or three weeks, you can get a continuous crop.

Space your seeds 2-4 inches apart in well fertilized soil. Plant your seeds around 1 inch deep.
