Dr. Martin pole lima bean - need info

dancinglemons(7B VA)October 10, 2012

Hello all,

I've been MIA on GardenWeb most of this growing season - but the garden was pretty good. Hope everyone is having (or had) a good season. Now for a question:

Anyone grow Dr. Martin pole lima?? If so could you share what you know. I've contacted some folks who sell this seed and will be ordering for 2013 season.

Thanks in advance!

I grew Dr. Martin beans some years ago and experience some amazing vine growth. Be sure and have plenty of highth and strong support. They seem to make a very heavy foliage. By the way, I've lost any source for seed. Would you please share where you ordered your seed. I'd love to get some. I've been growing Burpee's Best Pole Lima's but am not totally satisfied with they way they grow and produce. They taste absolutely wonderful; but my production was slim.
