It's true about lima beans -- you either love them or hate them. But if you hate them, it may be because they haven't been the small, tender, and creamy-sweet beans you get when you grow them in your backyard.
Similar to snap beans, lima beans grow on bush or vining types, and they may be harvested green or allowed to stay on the vine longer to dry. However, unlike snap beans, limas require more heat and a longer time (75 to 88 days) to mature.

how to grow Lima bean
Harvest lima beans for shelling when the seeds have reached full size and the pods are plump. For dried lima beans, wait until the pods turn brown and brittle.
