Phaseolus coccineus, a white form of scarlet runner bean; beans almost identical to limas only much fatter and easily grown in the north where true limas fail. Most people plant on poles or fencing but i prefer sunflowers, giving two crops from the same space. Especially prone to Mexican bean beetles. Those which mature too late for drying i shell and freeze; serve mixed with chopped sweet corn and chopped sweet pepper. Given to me by my late friend and UNH plant breeder Elwyn Meader
