One of the 1,186 beans given to SSE by John Withee and his Wanigan Associates in 1981. Similar in appearance to limas, but not a true lima. Beautiful flattened golden seeds with darker striping. Originally offered by Abundant Life Seed Foundation in the 1980s. Attractive and flavorful.
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.
