[Introduced 1990 by SESE. Reported to be of Native American origin, pre-1868.] Our hardiest lima. Produces medium-sized limas on heat- and drought-resistant plants and is a prolific producer under adverse conditions. Seeds range in color from dull red to dull maroon-red. This variety still exhibits a wild trait: a few pods spring open (shatter) when the pods are completely dry. (½ lb = 8 oz = 228 g)
