90 days. Large 8’-10’ vines yield very LARGE white lima beans and give huge yields over a long season. An heirloom from 1883, introduced by Frank S. Platt. An old-fashioned favorite, excellent for home gardeners.

What are the pros? Most delicious lima bean!

What are the cons? Very few beans.

Review:

The vines were very tall but there was only enough for 1 quart of limas. I do wish it had produced more beans.

What are the pros? Easy, productive, 100% germ

What are the cons? Slow maturation

Review:

These beans had a germination success of 100% in my community garden plot and grew up a 6' trellis! However, this August my tomato plants suffered from blight and it seems to have transferred to my once beautifully healthy beans, producing holes in the leaves and eventually withering the vines. Next year, I will be sure to give them plenty of room away from blight-prone plants. They looked so beautiful before this took hold!

What are the pros? Abundant yield

What are the cons? None

Review:

These beans must be the same ones written about in Jack and the Beanstalk! They grew, and grew, and then grew some more. They took over a section of my garden, but I didn't mind because the beans were so amazing and bountiful. I'm ordering them again for a repeat performance. The grandkids loved picking and shelling these wonderful beans.

What are the pros? best flavor of any shell lima

What are the cons? doesn't like too much water

Review:

I've grown this variety for years and even compared to the standard Fordhook it has superior shell bean flavor. It is a vigorous grower but doesn't like overhead watering. individual beans vary in size and can grow to 1 1/2"!

What are the pros? They are vigorous!

What are the cons? none

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.
