Finally, a productive Lima bean for our northern growing season! Early Thorogreen Lima beans seeds produce dwarf plants that grow to only 50cm (20″) tall, so do not require staking. Big clusters of 9-10cm (3½-4″) pods develop near the tops of the plants, each containing beautiful, plump baby Lima beans (or butter beans). Enjoy these fresh from the garden, or dry them for winter use. Lima beans are super-high in fibre and protein, but contain hardly a trace of fat. Their high magnesium content relaxes veins and arteries in the body, improving blood oxygen levels and the circulation of nutrients. Another super-food from your own back yard!
