Phaseolus limensis

Planting:

Direct seed after all danger of frost when the soil reaches 18-24°C (65-75°F). Sow 1" deep, 4-6" apart in rows 30-32" apart.

Growing:

Lima beans need a sunny, warm spot with very well drained soil as these beans prefer a dry soil and a long, warm growing season. For fertility and soil pH requirements, see regular bush beans.

Harvest:

Begin picking once the pods are well filled and beans are still tender. Pick regularly for continual yield.
