Details

The most beautiful lima beans we have grown! Also known as Large Speckled Calico. This heirloom variety was introduced around 1840 and produces beautiful flat white seeds with maroon spots. Their delectable flavor can be used fresh or dry. We were consistently eating these off the vine. The plants yield well even in very hot weather.
