Review:

I love these beans! They have a slight sweetness to them, and the coloring is really quite striking! This was my first year growing beans, and attempting to save space, I tried planting 8 seeds in a square foot. Despite consistent neglect, and competition with the other plants I'd crammed in next to them, these beans took over and out produced the majority of my garden, growing all the way up their 6' teepee and onto another nearby. The pods are still producing even now in October. I intend to plant them every spring from now on, but I will definitely give them a bit more space when I do. I did have some cross-pollination (I think) with the neighboring snow-cap beans, because they ended up with some similar red markings. However, the Christmas limas didn't take on any characteristics of the snow-caps. Overall, growing these beans was easy and rewarding. They'll likely produce even better when they're given adequate love and more space to grow.

What are the pros? Nothing really

What are the cons? low germination, low yield

Review:

I planted two groups of seeds at two different times during the summer, once mid May and another around mid July. Both groups had very low germination rates. I soaked them, used the best looking ones. Kept them watered and nothing. I planted other pole bean varieties right next to them using the same bed and trellis and the others did fine. Maybe these are picky beans or I did something wrong. This is my second time trying this bean. I am going to try one more time next summer before I completely nix growing them.

What are the pros? Very vigorous

What are the cons? none so far

Review:

So this was my first year growing Lima Beans. I Was unaware of how strong they are. They are under heavy pest pressure(Aphids/Mites/Ants)and they just keep going and growing. I am suprised that they are a vigorous as they are. The green beans/peas/soup beans I had planted got wiped out cold but this variety just keeps going. not sure howw they taste yet butif they are good this will be a staple in my garden from now on.

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!
