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. The 5 gallon bucket holds approximately 38 pounds of baby lima beans.
Be prepared and have your food storage on hand!
Each bucket of dry beans is sealed with oxygen absorbers. Each bucket has a tear tab lid which contains a rubber gasket. Our plastic food grade buckets may be reused several times. If stored in a cool, dry place, beans should last 10+ years. In an emergency situation, boiling the beans in water for 20 minutes will kill any bacteria and will still give you some nutrition.
