Organic Jackson Wonder Lima Bean
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!
The seeds arrived promptly & had great information on the packaging to help me as a new planter. We were missing one of the seeds we ordered & when I called the customer service was swift, polite & helpful. I received the missing packet a couple of days later. All the seeds I have planted have germinated & look hearty so far. I love the sustainability teaching & mission of the company.
