Lima Shelling Beans
Inventory, lb : 0
Two or three creamy-green colored beans are encased in the Lima Shelling Bean's flat slightly curved green inedible pod. Offering a mild and mellow flavor when cooked, the flavor is reminiscent to that of the butter bean, which they are sometimes called. Immature bean pods tend to be smaller, causing the beans inside to sometimes taste too starchy or have a mealy texture. To shell, press on the pod's inside curve; split open and remove beans.
Lima Shelling Beans are available mid-July to November stretching into December.
Especially in the South, Lima beans are often called butter beans.
