Beans, Lima, Baby

Baby lima beans are a smaller, thin-skinned, milder flavored variety; they are not the same as the immature large lima beans. Baby lima beans are also less starchy than the larger “Fordhook” or “Butter” variety. Lima beans are believed to have originated in Guatemala and Southern Mexico about 5,000 years ago. Baby limas are slightly over 20% protein and are very nutritious. See the nutritional chart below.
