(Phaseolus lunatus) This is a hard to find heirloom from Kentucky – traditionally cooked in the 'pot liquor' - the liquid left after cooking greens or beans in a pot. Beans are produced on tall plants (pole type) that are highly productive. Beans are small lima beans- up to a half inch long when dried and mature. Harvest some beans to use fresh during the summer, save some to mature on the plants until dry. Most/full sun. 20+ seeds.
