Burbank Lima Beans

Mr. Burbank says that the bean, notwithstanding its popularity, has been somewhat neglected. Perhaps it would have been more coddled and developed if it had been less hardy. But beans grow anywhere, and under any conditions, and so do not seem to demand attention. Nevertheless they reward the experimenter by their responsiveness, as these giant limas, developed under Mr. Burbank's tutelage, clearly testify.
