Dr. Martin Lima Bean Seed- And you thought that he just made boots, No not that Dr. Martin. Ours was a dentist who owned a farm here in Chester County and was a bit of a plant breeder (Developed the Lima most likely sometime in the 30’s)
and his Lima causes somewhat of hysteria here in the deep reaches of the Brandywine River, where people whisper about it at candle light dinner parties of mid-summer. A giant Lima bean that is a culinary treasure the pods can be 8-9” long and each bean can be 1.5-2” across. Shelled these beans have a sweetness and lack of starch that is not seen in many other Lima beans. No true Pa German succotash would be complete with out this bean.
Our seed is a mixture of three sources all directly from the good Dr. himself.
