Bean, Lima Fordhook 242 Bush

Heat-resistant plants thrive in adverse conditions.

Customer Favorite!

All-America Selections winner. This Burpee bred bean is heat-resistant and thrives in adverse conditions. The heavy yields of 4" pods with 3-5 large beans each are excellent for freezing. Proven tops for productivity, flavor and wide adaptability. Bush varieties mature earlier than pole limas and don't need support. A 2 oz. seed packet will sow a 15-ft. row.
