Does anyone grow any of the collections
I am growing the Lynch Butterbean Collection.Alston Collection,Butterbean Colored from Al.and Violet's Multicolored Butterbean
They all are more productive than the pure bred varieties
I imagine this is because of hybrid vigor

RE: Butter Bean Collections

The only mixed lima I presently grow is "Hopi Pole", which I believe is close to the original unsegregated version. I've considered growing the "Lynch Butterbean", it has some beautiful color combinations... but I only grow two limas per year, and this year's varieties are already planned.
