Easy-care dwarf lima bean plants bear pods in clusters, so picking is easy. Baby Thorogreen produces plump pods with 3-4 pale green beans per pod. Tender beans are flavorful cooked fresh, in soups and other recipes. They are also good for drying. Bush-type plants grow 20 in. tall with a similar spread and require no staking. Baby Thorogreen is an early-maturing lime bean, making it a favorite for Northern gardeners. For best results, sow lima bean seeds directly into the garden after the danger of spring frost has passed. Can be sown every two weeks for a continuous harvest. 67 DAYS.
