1889 Maule's Seed Co. says about Henderson's New Bush Lima Bean...
"The New Bush Lima produces a continuous crop from the time it comes into bearing (it is fit for the table in the latitude of New York by the middle of July) until frost, and being enormously productive, a very small patch will keep a family supplied with this splendid vegetable throughout the season."
1942 Schell's Seed Co. says about Henderson's Lima Bean....
"Small beans, but very tender and exquisitely rich, buttery, lima flavor, whether used green or dried for winter. Very heavy yielder."
