Bush Limas - German Red vs Henderson Red

LoboGothic(6b SW Ontario CANADA)January 1, 2013

Have grown Henderson Red Lima for a number of years. This is a vigorous, heavy bearing bush lima which produces seed fairly early. German Red Lima sounds similar - does anyone have experience growing it to give some comparison with HRL?

I have not grown GERMAN RED but did grow an unstable strain of HENDERSON RED that kept throwing white seed like it's parent HENDERSON

The Henderson Red that came from a Seeds of Diversity member is stable.
