85 to 90 days — 'Butterbean' was developed for fresh eating. Its plants are strong, short (fifteen to thirty inches) and stocky. It is very prolific producing lots of pods each containing an average of three large, bright green, beans each.
Their flavor is somewhat sweet tasting making them a good substitute for Lima beans when picked at the stage when the pods are filled and just begin to turn yellow. Excellent in succotash. Each packet contains 25 to 30 seeds.
