Hardy Madagascar Bean

Scientifically known as Phaseolus lunatus this bean is a tropical and subtropical lima bean. It is a perennial vine that keeps producing large fat beans for most of the year. You can eat them green shelled or dried. Delicious, plump and creamy they store well in jars and the dry bean will keep for months. Sometimes they get weevils but a few nights in the freezer will fix that.  In the subtropics they can grow on a fence or strong trellis and, depending on how many plants you have, will provide a good harvest every week.  If anyone wants to know how to get some of these beans to grow they can contact Loretta
