Madagascar Beans

Have you grown Madagascar Beans? They are delicious! They are a form of perennial climbing lima bean, sweet, buttery and easy to grow. The bean is an attractive white with purple speckles. They are hardy in the sub-tropics, and ours has had three crops in a year so far. I will bring some seeds to the December meeting for all to try.  A few plants is all you need – grow them along a fence or trellis.
