Jackson Wonder Bush Lima Bean

Phaseolus lunatas

In the 18th century, the lima or butterbean was often called the bushel or sugar bean. Jackson Wonder is a bush form of heirloom lima bean growing 18-24” tall.

The beans are meaty and sweet and can be eaten fresh or dried. The plants grow best in full sun and well-drained soil. The seeds dry to a tan color with maroon to purple mottling. Regular harvesting of the young pods will ensure a greater yield. Bears even during extreme heat which makes it a popular variety to grow in the South.

Beans are not cold tolerant and need warm soil of 65-70°F or higher to grow. Direct sow beans in the garden, plant seeds 1” deep and 6-8” apart; space rows 2’ apart. Seeds germinate in 10-14 days. Thin seedlings to a 12-14” spacing between plants when they are 1-2” tall. 60-70 days for fresh beans. 80+ days for dry beans.
