Henderson bush lima bean
Phaseolus lunatus. Dwarf variety that is remarkably hardy, disease resistant, early and high yielding. Small white limas can be canned when pods are green or harvested dry when pods are brown. Careful – if harvesting dry beans, pods must be harvested regularly to avoid shattering and seed loss. A small percentage of plants will vine out, but trellising is not necessary. 70-75 days.
