Henderson's Bush Lima

70 days — The erect, bushy plants of 'Henderson's Bush Lima' beans are reliable and set pods until frost. It is an old-time favorite used for canning, freezing and as dry beans. 'Henderson's Bush Lima' bean is also known as 'Henderson's Dwarf', 'Henderson's Baby Lima', and 'Earliest Bush Lima'.

It was found by chance along a Lynchburg, Virginia roadside in about 1883, was grown by a local market gardener, and eventually passed along to T. W. Woods & Sons. They grew it for two years and then sold their whole stock to Peter Henderson & Company in 1887. Henderson increased and improved the stock and released it to the gardening public in the spring of 1889. The seeds dry to a creamy white color. Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 75 seeds.
My favorite garden vegetable
I can't believe there aren't any reviews for these yet! My grandmother used to grow Henderson Bush Lima Beans every year and made the most delicious butter beans with them. Back in 2006 or 2007 I bought some from Victory Seeds for my first garden. They produced beautifully for me then, and twelve years later the descendants of those seeds are still going strong. In fact, I had so much extra seed that I just gave my sister enough for a few years. The flavor of these when young is amazing. Sweet, creamy, and tender, and not even a tiny bit mealy. Everyone should grow these in their garden!
