McCrens Bush Lima Beans
Introduced by McCrea Seed Co. in 1934. Plant medium stocky erect prolific and of medium season. Small pod like Baby Lima but seed large thick potato type. Will stand extreme heat in Summer much better than other large seeded Limas. Green seeded dry seed small and shriveled requiring less seed for planting. Excellent for home garden and Canners use. Pods thick flat slightly curved contain from 3 to 5 seeds. 72 days from planting to picking time.
Woods Prolific Bush Lima
A distinct and valuable improvement over the original Hendersons. Produces a larger bean thicker and more prolific than the Hendersons Bush Lima.
Burpees Bush Lima
A bush form of the true large Lima. Plants uniformly dwarf but enormously productive. Pods as large as those of the Large Lima and contain from three to five very large flat beans of the best quality. While not quite as early as Hendersons Bush Lima this is considered by many to be of better quality fully equaling in this respect the large White Lima. Seed of medium size flat white.
This is the original Large Lima Bush Bean which blazed the way for the immense popularity of Bush Limas. When first introduced in 1890 it created a great sensation and it was impossible to supply the demand for seed even at the previously unheard of price four beans for seventy-five cents and not more than two packets (8 beans for 1.50) sold to any one purchaser. Little did we think then that nature would create two more wonderful novelties in bush limas. Pkt. 10c pt. 30c postpaid. qt. 40c 4 qts. 1.40 peck 2.50
This comes absolutely true from seed and only the new Burpee-Improved is a better variety of similar type. The bushes grow eighteen to twenty inches high of stout growth and always erect yet branching so vigorously that each plant develops into a magnificent circular bush from two to three feet in diameter. It is an immense yielder. This is the original Dwarf Large Lima as first introduced exclusively by us in 1890. the pods and beans however are not so large nor are the bushes so prolific as the new and distinct Burpee-Improved.
