Description & Nutritional Value

First offered by Peter Henderson Company of New York. Peter Henderson (1822-1890) emigrated from Scotland in 1843 and began his career as a market gardener. This is a very early, productive and hardy dwarf lima. 'Henderson's Bush Lima' bean is also known as 'Henderson's Dwarf', 'Henderson's Baby Lima', and 'Earliest Bush Lima'. Lima beans are super-high in fiber and protein, but contain hardly a trace of fat. Their high magnesium content relaxes veins and arteries in the body, improving blood oxygen levels and the circulation of nutrients. Another super-food from your own back yard! * Nitrogen-fixer in the soil - chop up plant and work it back into the soil

How To Grow

Lima Beans will require an area of full sunlight for the majority of the day. The plants will thrive in temperatures of at least 65F and require a soil that is fertile and rich in organic matter. You must also make sure that your sowing medium is well drained as well. Adding a light compost to any areas containing hard, compact soil will improve your overall drainage. Water the seeds daily until germination occurs. Henderson Lima Beans may be harvested anywhere from 60-80 days after germination when the pods feel full and firm, but before the pods start to turn yellow.
