What are the pros? trellis well

What are the cons? very low germination rate

Review:

Sadly, only about 10 seeds germinated out of the entire pack of seeds. The ones that did sprout seem to be doing fine. I see flowers, but still no beans yet. I was looking forward to a large harvest of lima beans, but looks like I'll be lucky to get enough for one dinner.

What are the pros? beautiful seeds

What are the cons? didn't germinate

Review:

It's unfortunate, I soaked beans then planted and out of a whole packet only 3 plants germinated. Mind you I only plant BCHS and this is the first time in years that seeds didn't produce. I must have missed something, improperly planted..not sure as I am very attentive to the requirements of each seed I sow. I will try again! My garden Looks fantastic and all the other plants are healthy and thriving....can't wait to taste my bounty!

What are the pros? Grow like crazy!!

What are the cons? Got to be patient!!!

Review:

I've been told that you can't grow Lima beans up here, it's too cold. Maybe for good old Fordhooks, but these things go crazy!!! I planted 16 seeds and fertilized with organic barn cleanings and they just went crazy!! they crawled up my 10' teepee and found my morning glorys and used them to climb on! they covered my chicken wire garden fence!! they had a real field day!!! but toward the middle of september I started to get nervous!! then the pods started to dry very slooooowly!! and by middle october those 16 plants gave me a cook pot full of lovely red and white speckled beans!!! this year i'm gonna plant a lot more of them and forget tomatos and tomato worms!!!!!

Very Prolific Lima Bean
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 2.5
 

What are the pros? Delicious and Colorful

What are the cons? Bugs are attracted to them

Review:

These beans are easy to grow and very prolific. I built six foot trellises out of PVC pipe. The beans reached the top in no time and dangled back down to the ground. The pods are slow to mature. They go from white to light red to almost black when they're allowed to dry out. They are delicious! Haven't tried them is soups yet. I live in zone 9. Our first average frost date is about December 2. It's November 26 and the beans are still going strong, though the pods are maturing even slower now. I definitely recommend Christmas Pole Beans!
