Limelight Shell & Dry Bean - Organic


Limelight Shell & Dry Bean - Organic

(60 days shell, 85 days dry) A versatile variety, excellent both as a shell and a dry bean. Plants benefit from loose trellising to avoid possible lodging. They set light green to white seeds similar in shape, color and taste to baby limas, except much easier to grow in our climate and sweeter with a buttery texture. Developed in Alberta, Canada, for growing where it is too cold to mature baby limas, and released in 1968.

Additional Information

Shell and Dry Beans

Phaseolus vulgaris 2 oz packet sows 25 ft; 1 lb, 200 ft. All bush beans except where noted.

Culture: In conditions of high nitrogen fertility some bush beans may develop vines in moist hot weather. Tender, will not survive frost. Plant 3–4 seeds/ft in rows 24–30" apart. Pick frequently for maximum yields, but avoid disturbing foliage in wet weather to prevent spread of fungal diseases.

Harvest shell beans when the beans are plump inside pods. For dry beans allow pods to dry on the vine until pressing the beans with your fingernail leaves no indentation. If heavy rains threaten just before maturity, pull plants by the roots and hang them in a dry place to finish or pick pods, shell and finish drying indoors.
