Description: First introduced in 1883, these limas are climbers, growing to 10' in fertile soil! 5-7" flat pods that are filled with 4 to 6 cream colored seeds. Not well suited for northern growing conditions.

Planting Instructions: 100 days. Plant 3-4 seeds per foot about 1-1/2" deep in rows 24-36" apart after danger from last frost is passed and soil is warmed up. Thin seedlings to 4-6" spacing.
