Lima Bean, Alabama Blackeyed Butterbean

94% of 100

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 a butterbean.
