01225 - Fordhook 242 Lima Bush Bean
Also known as the 'Potato Lima'. Probably the most famous lima bean in the world - tender, juicy, and butter-sweet. Dwarf habit and great yields make it ideal for the small home gardener. Pods grow profusely in clusters and are set high off the ground at foliage level thus avoiding rot. Bears throughout the season until frost. Outstanding freezing bean.
