76 days. Very productive. Beans are about the size of peas;
red-speckled with a deep purple-rust color and grow well
in hot weather. A delicious baby lima. Bush plants.

What are the pros? I am doing nothing!!!
What are the cons? nada
I planted one pack of these over 2 years ago here in east TX. We experienced extremely hot temperatures and droughts in both 2011 and 2012. I planted these once. Each year, I have several, several plants come up. You miss the pods unless you are actually looking up under, but they are loaded. In the past, if I found dried pods, I would open and throw the seeds on the ground. Well, I have many more plants now. Today, I finally picked enough for a side this evening. Just tried them on the stove & they taste good. These turned greyish colored. I took the dried pods am saving those for seeds. Obviously, I need to plant these each year b/c they are extremely hardy. I do NOT like shelling the fresh ones, but my husband discovered they can go through the pea sheller. Would do better if they sat a day before running them through.

We love these beans! We are growing them in South Florida and they absolutely love the heat. We have been letting our pods dry on the plant and then harvesting. They seem to just keep going with new blooms and fresh pods. We planted them back in the spring time, around April or May. We are looking forward to harvesting all year.

My whole family, including several kids who usually hate lima beans, *loved* these last year! They only produced in one big crop, and didn't last long afterward, but the taste of them was out of this world! We wanted to get more this year, but I see we missed our chance, as they are out of stock. So disappointed that we can't grow them this year!
