Snow on the Mountain Lima Bean


Seed Savers Organic Seed Packet

The large beans of this vigorous pole lima variety are quite tasty, with the dry beans having a sweet, walnut flavor when cooked. Slightly curved, sometimes twisted pods grow 4-4.5"" long and contain three to four seeds each. Reverend Roy Blount of Washington Parish, Louisiana, shared this early-maturing variety with Seed Savers Exchange member John Coykendall, who gave it to SSE. It has been in Blount’s family since the 1880s but reportedly dates back to at least the 1860s. Ready for harvest in 80 days.
