Q.Can a Lima Bean Grow Into a Tree?

reichsam@yahoo.com added on June 15, 2011 | Answered

If yes, how tall or how long will it take to reach 10 feet tall? Also, I planted a lima bean. It got a stem and leaves. Will it grow edible lima beans?

A lima bean will not grow into a tree. It is a vining annual, so may get several feet tall but will never get woody like trees and will die after a few months.

If you planted a lima bean, then yes, there is a good chance that if it does not die before it is full grown, it will grow more lima beans.
