Huge Lima beans are white with dark burgundy splashed markings. Pole habit. Very good production. Used as a fresh shelled or "shelly" bean or as a dry bean. Can also be canned or frozen as a shelly bean. Full bodied, nutty flavored and sometimes called having a chestnut taste. Dates to the 1840's. Seed is very large, only 20+ seed per ounce.
