Incredibly prolific lima from the South. This seed was first sent to us by our friend Bill Peters of Alabaster, Alabama. He got it from Sam Reid of Hayden, Blount County, in 1995 from his ad in the Alabama Farmers Bulletin. Bill placed the seeds in his freezer and forgot about them for 14 years! They grew, and he sent seed to us. This delicious lima is small, blue to black in color. Rampant vines needs strong support. Thrived in heat and drought in our trials. Very rare!

Review:

I ordered these beans when I lived in Alabama, five years ago and didn't get around to growing them until we moved to Massachusetts the next year. These have been growing in my garden every year since and I have shared with numerous gardeners in my community garden, many of whom are from the south themselves. If I could only grow one kind of bean for the rest of my life, this would be the bean. Amazingly prolific, tasty and beautiful.
