Bean – Snow on the Mountain lima bean

R30.00 incl VAT

This variety is from Peak Week Pods. JC Terblanche says: ‘Productive and lovely looking smallish bean that was grown in the family of Reverend Roy Blount, Louisiana, from 1880. The white colouration resembles snow on the dull red/brown background – it’s a fitting name for this bean. The plants climb up to 1.5 m in height, but love to grow sideways as well which makes them appear compact. Small white flowers will reward you with a bumper crop of lima beans that can be eaten freshly shelled or dried. They take slightly longer to grow than other varieties but the yields will keep coming until winter which makes this variety totally worth the wait. Pick regularly for best yields.’
