Pole limas - 10-20 lbs per plant?
Is this information correct? Lima beans have an undeserved reputation for being difficult to grow. If you follow the basic steps for growing snap beans, your limas will thrive. As with green beans, lima beans come in two forms Â bush lima and pole lima. The bush limas will grow to 10 to 15 inches tall and 4 to 8 inches wide. The pole lima will climb to 8 to 15 feet tall and the plants will be 6 to 8 inches wide. For sure the pole lima will need a good sized trellis to hold it. A 25 foot row of bush limas will produce 6 to 8 pounds of beans in their shells. The pole version will produce 10 to 20 pounds for one plant.
If THIS is true, I may need to re-think how many I'm going to plant, even if they produce that many over a number of months!
