Details

Phaseolus limensis
Giant Speckled Christmas Lima Pole Bean (80 days)

A heavy yielder, easy to shell, and is a reliable producer in hot, humid areas.Christmas Limas are related to the lima bean, similar to the giant Peruvian Lima but plumper. This is a large bean with a maroon batik pattern over a creamy background.

The Christmas Lima may be referred to as a speckled lima or butter bean. The bean is 7/8 long and maintains its markings after cooking. The bean's chestnut flavor combined with its festive coloring are the reason for the name Christmas Lima.

The Christmas Lima has a buttery flavor and creamy texture. The lima's crisp nutty flavor- sometimes described as similar to chestnuts. The cooked texture is similar to that of a baked potato

0-60 days for green, 100+ days for dry beans. Some vines can reach 12' long, so provide adequate support. Not cold tolerant, beans need warm soil of 65 degrees or better. Regular harvesting of the young pods will ensure a greater yield. Grows best in full sun with well watered soil. Boost yields and germination by adding inoculants.

Make sure to provide adequate support for these vigorous climbers! A strong fence or twine hung on a strong pole will give them plenty of room to grow and good harvest yields.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or over watering and possibly having them rot.
