Bean, Bush Lima 'Jackson Wonder'

(Phaseolus lunatus) We have grown this beautiful heirloom from 1888 at our farm for two seasons now, and it is a real treat to pop open the dry pods and see the patterned seeds. Light to dark chestnut background with maroon mottling all the way up to fully maroon with chestnut speckling. A highly productive variety, this plant was putting out fresh beans all summer long, throughout the fall rains and right up until frost. Can be grown as a dry bean in our northern climate if you harvest dry pods about once a week near the end of summer, but is also an excellent producer of fresh Limas for freezing. According to William Woys Weaver, this variety is not as affected by cooler nighttime temperatures as other Lima are, making it more widely adaptable across the country. Young fresh beans are green while the more mature begin to show coloration, which will bleed out in the cook pot. Because of this, the mature Jacksons are better suited to soups and stews rather than being served on their own. When cooked as a shelly bean, it is exceptionally creamy with a classic Lima flavor. While large seeded Lima varieties originated in the Andes, the smaller varieties were domesticated in Guatemala and Mexico much later, around the year 800. Much like cowpeas, Lima plants secrete nectar from glands other than inside the flower. Known as extrafloral nectaries, these are used by the plant to attract ants, wasps and flies as a defense against herbivorous insects. 18-24” plants.
