It is mostly intercropped, with Sorghum, maize Cassava and Millet. This plant is grown in Nigeria south to Malawi, South-America, Madagascar, India, the far east, and Northern Australia.

  • Beans Lima Dixie

    R24.00

    Dixie Beans are practically unknown in South Africa. These are also known as Bush Lima Beans and are a different variety to our normal beans that we are used to. Lima Beans are eaten only as “green shelled” beans or as dried beans. The pods are inedible and actually taste quite disgusting… I know I tried them. For best results these beans are picked when the pods are swollen and before they “turn”. Shell them and cook for 15- 20 mins in boiling water or a steamer. Don’t eat them raw as they are indigestible. Toss on a good dollop of real butter and have a feast. You will never look at beans the same way again. No VAT payable
