Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Just a Bowl of Buttered Peas
Everybody has different names for vegetables!
My wife (from Georgia) pointed out to me that the small, almost round limas are called butterpeas in her mother's family but that most of her father's relatives called them butterbeans.
I was only partly right (or partly wrong). She ruled out the Hendersons I mentioned above.
Found the seed advertised as "Dixie White Butterpea Bean" by Cooper Seeds of Georgia. Unfortunately they won't grow in our cold climate.
