About- Christmas Lima Beans, sometimes called a climbing butter bean, are a gardener's favorite! These heirloom beans are known for their high yield and unique coloring--dark red splashes against a white background. Best of all, they are richly flavored with a nutty taste that pairs especially well with soups. Enjoy the pleasure of harvesting your own fresh lima beans with this heirloom favorite. Productive, 10-foot vines produce 4-6 inch pods filled with extra large beans up to 3/4 of an inch in diameter.

When and Where to Plant- Select a sunny location and plant in spring when the soil temperature is above 60 and up until 3 months before first frost. Grow pole beans on trellis poles or on a mesh fence to allow them to climb. For best results plant seeds in a well prepared, weed free bed.

Care and Harvest- Grows best in a soil with a pH between 6 and 7, and light fertilization. Do not over fertilize as this will cause an overgrowth of foliage and not allow pods to form. Harvest when seeds are fully mature and pods appear dry, splitting open. Ensure that seeds are fully dry before storage. Once fully dry, beans will store for a long time!
