Growing Tips

Plant when the soil temperature is between 65° and 70°. Plant in a soil that is evenly moist and drains well. Do not soak seeds in advance as this could cause them to crack.

 Do not over water it may cause seeds to germinate poorly.

When planting try to time the crop so pods will set before the hottest part of summer.

Harvesting Crops

Lima Beans will be ready to harvest 60-80 days after sowing. Pick pods when they are firm and full but before they yellow. Continue to pick pods as they become available to keep a steady production of new pods. If left to long pods will become tough. Lima beans should produce 2 to 3 pickings per season.

Harvesting Seeds

When growing season has ended allow the beans to dry. The pods will be a light shade of brown and will rattle inside. Remove the seeds from the pod. If not dry continue to set until completely dry. Store in a cool, dry place for up to a year.

Seed Saving Tip: Store in a moisture proof bag in the refrigerator to guarantee the longest seed viability.
