A delicious Alabama heirloom butterbean. We received this seed from a customer whose family has passed the seeds down for many generations. This bean is quite vigorous and will need trellising. Does well in extreme heat and drought conditions. Technically a Lima Bean, this creamy white bean is traditionally grown in Alabama and referred to there as butterbean.

What are the pros? Grows in clay

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

Started 6 seeds on June 2 in native slightly amended native clay. 4 would eventually emerge and vined on 7 foot poles. Unusually wet summer even for Atlanta. Powdery mildew overtook everything except this variety in August. They were completely neglected and have never been sheltered, fertilized, or even watered. They literally outgrew heavy caterpillar and slug pest pressure. By September they were still alive and started flowering but looked weak. October 1, first mature and dry pod with 3 completely mature seeds harvested. There are currently abundant green pods and flowers in all maturity stages and the plants look vigorous and healthy. I really have nothing negative to say about this variety. I have not tasted it yet so, I'm unable to comment on that. My clay soil is astoundingly terrible and 4 plants will yield more than I will need. I expect to plant every year.

What are the pros? Taste, only BB I'll eat

What are the cons? Takes a while to Produce

Review:

I sent these seeds to an employee of yours named Randall. I'm glad to see these listed as I've been unable to garden for the last 5 or 6 years. If my saved seed (stored in glass and in freezer) don't germinate I know I can order replacement seeds. Planning my garden now ( already placed about 30 packets on my wish list plus my standbys), just need a larger gardening space Keep up the great job of saving seeds from being lost.

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.
