Considered a baby lima bean as it grows on low maintenance, 18 inch bush plants. Highly suitable to Northern states, Early Thorogreen Bush Lima Bean is a delicious choice for soups and casseroles.

Jackson Wonder Lima Bean

Prolific, cold-hardy heirloom with bright nutty flavor and distinctive coloring. Lovely and flavorful, Jackson Wonder was introduced in 1888, quickly becoming an American favorite. A rich chestnut color, speckled with maroon, the beans have a bright, nutty flavor.

With a compact bush habit, the prolific plants only grow 18 to 24 inches tall, so harvesting is quick and easy. One cold-hardy lima bean, Jackson Wonder performs beautifully through the warmer parts of Zone 5 when other limas have given up.  

Harvest in about 90 days.
