Bean, Lima, Burpee's Best Pole is rated out of 5 by 4.Rated 1 out of 5 by bobaluke from Burpee's best pole beans ? Usually I have a good experience with the seeds I purchase from Burpee's seeds, however I wasted my money with these seeds! not one seed sprouted!! Very disappointed in this purchase!Date published: 2012-05-10Rated 5 out of 5 by Marie11 from Bean, Lima, Durpee's Best Planted twice. Did not germinate either time.Date published: 2012-05-09Rated 5 out of 5 by SWGA from Great Lima I tried this lima. I was very surprised. This is a good disease resistant variety. I struggled with rust on my pole beans this year and had these planted near them. To my surprise they didn't were not affected by the rust. The foliage is very healthy and appears to have a good strong stem. I am just starting to see beans sprout. I will buy again!Date published: 2011-07-09Rated 5 out of 5 by woodpyle from Welcome old friend What a surprise to see this wonderful bean available again. We used this exclusivly for many years. However, we moved to a wooded area for about seven years and upon moving to sunlight we were unable to locate this seed. It has always produced excellant beans that easy to detect when ready to pick.Date published: 2010-05-31
