Flossie Powell Lima Bean
(Phaseolus lunatus); Heirloom; Pole bean; Dry bean; LIMITED INVENTORY; Minimum 10 seeds
Ethel Martin received seeds for this little lima from Ms. Flossie Powell in 1922 and shared some with her nephew Harold R. Martin of Hopkinsville Kentucky. While the variety was introduced to the Seed Savers Exchange network in the 80s by Harold, Flossie Powell is now experiencing a resurgence within the seed saving community. I received my original stock from John Coykendall during the 2018 Spring Ohio Valley Seed Swap.
Vigorous vines easily reached 8 feet and produced an abundance of small dry pods by first hard frost (13 October).
