Organically grown in my seed garden, harvested and packaged by hand in resealable air tight bags (each bag is individually labeled). each purchase includes a full page seed fact sheet and planting/growing instructions. All seed lots are tested for germination. Introduced by Perter Henderson & Company in 1889. When released it was called "Henderson's New Bush Lima Bean". This is one buttery flavored baby lima bean. The bush is very erect, reliable and produces 3-4 beans per pod. Continues to set until first frost. Excellent for canning, freezing or drying.1889 Maule's Seed Co. says about Henderson's New Bush Lima Bean. "The New Bush Lima produces a continuous crop from the time it comes into bearing (it is fit for the table in the latitude of New York by the middle of July) until frost, and being enormously productive, a very small patch will keep a family supplied with this splendid vegetable throughout the season."1942 Schell's Seed Co. says about Henderson's Lima Bean. "Small beans, but very tender and exquisitely rich, buttery, lima flavor, whether used green or dried for winter. Very heavy yielder." Zones 3-10. All seeds are packaged and for the current growing season. Please see my other seed listing. This seed needs protection during shipping therefore there is an additional charge for shipping (1.00) additional shipping charges for packages of peas are 35 cents.
