Large, new-crop, fast cooking Lima beans with classic Lima bean taste and melt-in-your-mouth texture.
Lima beans have a creamy texture and savory flavor and they taste more like fresh vegetables than other beans. Good, new crop Limas (like these!) are worthy of your attention, especially if you grew up eating those nasty frozen beans, under pressure from your dear old mom. Chances are she overcooked them.
The origin of Lima beans is thought to be Peru (hence the name Lima). White lima beans are popular in the Southern U.S., where the smaller varieties are known as "butter beans."
