Bean, Dr. Martin's Lima (Pole)


(pre-1900) Dr. Martin's can be quite vigorous in their growth habit with vines up to 12 feet in length, but they seem to prefer climbing a trellis to the more traditional teepee poles. The pods are usually 5 inches in length and contain 3 to 4 large beans. There are a number of lima bean devotees at the Heirloom Seed Project who would proclaim these limas to have the best flavor in the whole world. Best planting around the beginning of June. Matures in 90-100 days. Each packet contains 10-12 seeds
