Item Details

This variety has been popular for hundreds of years and is also sometimes known as 'Small White' or 'Carolina' lima.

Lima beans were domesticated in the Andes around 2000 BCE and in Mesoamerica almost 3000 years later, resulting in the Sieva type. It wasn't until the 1500s that limas were being grown in Europe and the Mediterranean regions.

I bought these to use in my garden for summer 2022. They did great!!! I live in Virginia and I am still picking beans in October. If we don't get frost, I suspect they will have time to produce another picking by the end of October.

Wow! Very good tasting.

Easy to grow on a high trellis. Great if limited space is an issue.
