Tags: Certified Organic Heirloom Open Pollinated

Growing Practices: No Pesticides No Herbicides No Fungicides No Synthetic Fertilizers

Latin Name: Phaseolus lunatus

Days to Maturity: 90

Description:

Beautiful, productive and tasty pole limas that tolerate drought and keep setting pods in very hot weather. We harvest the dry pods once a week or so from mid August through late October, and eat year round – they have a rich and hearty flavor. The beans don’t tend to fall prey to mold, so they need little or no sorting once winnowed. Saved by 4 generations of Violet Brady Westbrook’s family in Banks County, Georgia. Introduced by Southern Exposure in 2009.

Note: thresh dry beans by putting on a tarp and stomping on them. Then winnow by pouring the beans and pods in front of a fan (with 1-2 bins beneath).
