Heirloom lima from the south . This Is one of our favorite pole limas as it produces baby limas abundantly with no problems with bean beetles like other modern varieties . It holds its seeds for seed saving for a long time before shatterring making it easy to collect the seeds for winter soups . The flavor is a bit wild also, unlike modern beans .

All of our seed offerings were grown here. We have been seed savers for 20 years. Our seeds are packaged in original art packets, hand folded with 100% recycled paper. Instructions for growing are not on the packs but are on the listing under seed template. Books on gardening as well as many catalogs carry general information on growing seeds. I am available by e-mail or phone to answer any growing questions as well. You won't find that service from many sources of seeds . The shipping on our orders also includes the processing and handling charges which is also less or equal to most seed companies. Remember we hand pack each order and drive from the farm to the post office to ship your order. I go every other day so I also have time to garden.
