• Dixie Beans Vegetable Seeds

Dixie Beans are practically unknown in South Africa. These are also known as Bush Lima Beans and are a different variety to our normal beans that we are used to. Lima Beans are eaten only as "green shelled" beans or as dried beans. The pods are inedible and actually taste quite disgusting... I know I tried them. For best results these beans are picked when the pods are swollen and before they "turn". Shell them and cook for 15- 20 mins in boiling water or a steamer. Don't eat them raw as they are indigestible. Toss on a good dollop of real butter and have a feast. You will never look at beans the same way again.

Approx 25 seeds.

Planting: Beans are best planted straight into the ground where they are to grow. Beans do not enjoy nitrogen added to the soil. In fact they will put their own in for you. They do however enjoy some organic matter in their soil. If picked often they will continue to produce until the plant is exhausted. You last planting month for runner or pole beans is Dec and for bush beans its mid-late January.
