01225 - Fordhook Bush Lima Bean Phaseolus lunatus Fordhook 242
The most popular of all bush lima beans. A dwarf form of the "Potato Lima" and a universal favorite wherever Bush Lima Beans are grown. It is gaining in popularity every year because its dwarf growth and its great productiveness make it ideally suited to the small home garden, as well as to the large acreage of the market gardener. Outstanding as a freezing bean. Its strong erect growth keeps the pods off the ground so that they are not injured by wind or rain, thus avoiding Rust and Rot. Pods, produced in clusters, contain 4 to 5 large, fat beans of the finest quality, packed closely together for easy shelling. Tender, juicy, sweet and buttery. Medium early. Ready for table use in 75 days. Fordhook Bush Lima Beans are always in heavy demand. We suggest that you order early.
