No garden is complete without Buttery Lima Beans. Introduced by the USDA in Beltsville in the 1940s. Fordhook is by far the best Lima bean for Northern climates, coastal conditions or cool nights. They are ready for use almost a week earlier than most bush limas. Fordhook has dense foliage reaching 16"-24". Pods are thick, meaty and contain 3-5 lima beans. Known for its almost nutty flavor. Nothing beats a steamy bowl of lima beans with a pat of butter! Excellent for canning, freezing or drying. Lima beans, a popular garden item in many Southern areas, like warmer soils to germinate. But they often fail to set during extremely hot weather. They generally do well in most Southern gardens when planted in late summer or early fall and allowed to mature during cooler conditions.
