Bean Lima, Big Mama

Bred from a rarely grown New Jersey heirloom.

Burpee Exclusive

Customer Favorite!

HEIRLOOM. Soak up a pot of Big Mama and each smooth-textured, extra-tasty bean will swell to fill a teaspoon. Big Mama will make "lima lovers" of your whole family. Healthy too, 1 cup of cooked lima beans provides 20% of the daily value for copper and magnesium, plus a whopping 13 grams of fiber. Easy to grow, the 8-10 ft. vines yield huge 8" long pods that are packed with giant beans. Harvest fresh when pale green or allow to dry to white for storing. Delicious!
