Organic Butter Beans originate from the Andes and were domesticated first in about 2000BC. 


Organic Butter Beans are low in fat and a source of protein and fibre. These Suma organic dried butter beans come from China.  Dried lima beans or butter beans can be served cooked themselves as a hot vegetable or in salads.
