Bean - Baby Lima White Dixie
The Bean Bush Baby Lima White Dixie Butter, 'Phaseolus lunatus', has white, small "baby" lima beans that have a delicious flavor and mature earlier than most limas. Fresh lima beans taste so different than store bought beans that you won't recognize them. The White Dixie Butter is sweet, tender and nutty. This bush lima ends up loaded with pods. The fresh lima beans taste incredible compared to the lima beans your mother fed you as a kid. The Baby Lima beans can be eaten fresh, frozen, or dried.
Plant Lima beans 1 to 2 weeks after the last average frost date. Lima beans are very frost sensitive so wait for warm weather. Lima beans prefer deep, sandy and well drained soils. Pick the pods when they are bulging but before they begin to turn yellow and dry out.
