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!

My favorite Lima bean

EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Vigorous, beautiful and tasty

What are the cons? Bugs like them, too

Review:

These pole beans put my bush variety to shame. These grew so vigorously that they dragged down the cane-pole teepees on which they trained...I simply reinforced the trellis, and they never missed a beat. The beans are so big and pretty that opening each pod is fun, and they taste wonderful. I'm already looking forward to eating the beans now shelled and waiting for me in the freezer. I'll definitely grow these again next season.

What are the pros? Great tasting & matures in NW!

What are the cons? so hard to find

Review:

These pole beans grow to full maturity in our short growing season here in the sodden Puget Sound region. Delicious and plentiful, if you like beans like I do, you will love this variety.

Review:

Very hardy variety in Hot Humid SC summers. Plant early for harvest, otherwise you are racing against the first hard frost.
