Plump white beans with a dark brown-to-black eye are produced on vigorous, large vines. Originally sent from an Alabama customer, whose family grew them for generations. Similar to Sieva but more productive.

Review:

We planted these last summer in our south-central Mississippi garden, and we were still picking beans the week of Thanksgiving. It was a very tough summer with a long drought and they got off to a slow start, but once they got going these beans never stopped producing until a hard frost finally got them. I was very impressed and will plant them every year from now on. They do turn a rather unappetizing color when cooked, but they have an excellent flavor. Would recommend them to anyone in my climate.

Review:

I tried growing these limas twice in our central Florida garden. Both times they were consistently attacked with insects and had rather poor yields. I would guess there was a total of 25 pods that matured.

Review:

Planted these beans on a whim, treated them with benign neglect (ha ha) and have been surprised with masses of beans. We live in alabama, so a long hot humid summer with not enough rain, no frost yet, and from 12 plants I have picked over 5 lbs of dry beans (beans dried on the vine before picking) with no fertilizer or much attention. Be aware that fresh beans when cooked can turn a kind of disturbing grey color, but very tasty!

Review:

I live in zone 5, and we didn't have a long enough season to get mature limas this year. It was a fairly wet spring and it seems to take a long time for the vines to take off. Once they did, the grew to at least 15 feet on our trellis. I may try this again and start inside.
