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).

    • I am not sure how it does as far north as that, but would be interested find out. Here in Virginia it starts producing about 90 days from planting, and we pick it for a full two months - from about August 15th to October 15th. So I'd imagine you'd get some harvest but lower yields than us.
