They do not currently have any seeds, but let me order anyway on their incoming shipment.

Evidently yhey are also known as "Christmas Lima Pole Bean"

Seedsavers has an heirloom variety called Christmas Lima that dates back to the 1840's. I grew it last year with some success. Might give it a look. Probably the same variety you ordered, Russ, but you may be interested in getting their catalog.
