Description:
Large 8-10 foot vines yield very LARGE white lima beans and give huge yields over a long season. An heirloom from 1883, introduced by Frank S. Platt. An old-fashioned favorite, excellent for home gardeners. It sets pods from the very bottom of the vine and will bear beans until frost. The large beans are good for freezing, canning and eating fresh.


Growing Instructions:
Because Lima Beans cannot survive cold weather, plant King of the Garden seeds well after the last frost when the soil temperature is over 70°. Place the seeds 2" deep and 10" apart in rows 30-36" apart allowing them to grow on a trellis or vertical support as soon as they emerge from the soil. If using a teepee structure, plant them in groups of 5-6 plants per pole. The soil should be enriched with compost or other organic matter and deeply worked. Lima beans prefer full sun, but can tolerate some shade, but germination times may be slow. Keep the soil moist for the most productive crops. Mulching can help conserve moisture.
