Abstract

The increasing importance of the lima beans as a substantial cash crop for the growers or farmers and as a quality food for the consumer has initiated many investigations directed towards improving its quality as a vegetable crop. Lima beans are well suited for processing; hence, studies of the quality of different varieties in relation to time of harvest have been made. Host processors are in agreement that the beans attain maximum quality before they are fully mature. After that, the yield and size increase whereas the quality decreases.
