Dear Client,

I have had to enlist the assistance of the Yakima County Master Gardener volunteers to answer this question. While we are certain that you are dealing with a variety of lima bean, we are not sure on the variety.

There is a very colorful and highly variable variety called Christmas Lima Bean. I suggest that you do a web search using this phrase and see if it matches with what you are growing.

Hope this helps and good luck with your endeavors
