Organic Jackson Wonder Lima Bean (68 days)


Many times heirlooms are named for the places or people from which they came and this lima bean is no exception. 

It was named for Thomas Jackson who farmed near Atlanta, GA after the Civil War.  Jackson Wonder Lima is a bush lima that grows about 2' tall and sets 3" pods. 

These pods contain 3-4 beans that are speckled with a purple-brown color. 

Delicious as a butter bean, but can be used dried for soups as well. 

Thrives in hot weather conditions. 

One of the most productive lima beans we carry.  See the pic of just how many beans are on one bush!

Very popular in the South.

The Texas Cooperative Extension at Texas A&M recommends this variety for Texas!

Planting Tips for Heirloom Beans:

50-60 days for green, 100+ days for dry beans. Not cold tolerant, beans need warm soil of 65° or higher. Grow best in full sun with well watered soil. Regular harvesting of the young pods will ensure a greater yield. Boost yields and germination by adding inoculants.

Avoid planting in soil that stays wet.  Heirloom bean diseases thrive in wet conditions, and the roots may not get enough oxygen.

Heirloom beans like soil that is slightly acid, about 6.5.  This can be achieved by adding mulched pine needles, peat moss or sulfur. 

Try wide row growing for bush beans.  Make your heirloom bean rows three across instead of just one.  Three wide is perfect because most people can reach across that width.  You can grow 3 times the amount of heirloom beans in the same space, you reduce the amount of area for weeds, and you'll save on water.
