Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Just a Bowl of Buttered Peas
Snuffy, a UK seed company used by many people over here advertises something called the Henderson's Bush Baby Lima bean which is small, yellowish when fresh and buttery in taste. This may be the butterbean of the southern US. I haven't tried them but they 'sound' about right. Is this what you are referring to?
Also in their list is a Burpee Lima bean which they say is "huge." This is probably the kind called a 'Lima' bean in the south.


Digression, but it reminds me to get my seed now.
