The Thorogreen Lima Bean is a high-yielding heirloom that loves higher temperatures. Plump, light green pods grow at the top of a compact plant for easy harvesting. Both fresh and dried beans have a smooth, buttery flavor. When eating fresh, be sure to cook them, as raw beans are toxic. This compact bush-type plant spreads wider than green beans, so give them room to grow.

  • Easy to grow
  • Bush growth habit
  • Heat loving
  • Early producer
