Lima Bean, Henderson's Bush

95% of 100

70 days. One of Peter Henderson & Co.’s most famous varieties, introduced in 1888, and still popular today. In 1888 Henderson offered $100 cash for plants bearing the most pods and proclaimed it “A VEGETABLE WONDER!!!” “Can and should be grown in every garden,” and also said “of all the Novelties...ever sent out, there is nothing so entirely distinct and valuable as this New Vegetable.” Dwarf bush plants can be grown like regular bush beans. They produce very tasty, tender beans, and very early too!
