Seed of the Month focuses on the heirloom stars of our jewelry designs

Each month, Saverine Creek Heirloom Seed Jewelry focuses on a bean or seed to introduce you to the little beauties around which we center our designs.

August 2018 introduces you to the Ping Zebra Lima Bean Seed

Necklace | Earrings

I acquired this beautiful small lima bean in 2015 from Joseph Simcox, a/k/a "The Botanical Explorer". The Ping Zebra grows in Yunnan province in southwester China, which has a subtropical climate. Although these would best be grown in a greenhouse or the deep south of the U.S., I was determined to give them a try here in Michigan. I started some seeds indoors and direct seeded the rest the first of June. Amazingly, they grew well and dried the beginning of October. These seeds are about the size of a dime, much smaller than the limas most of us are used to. The rusty-red markings on the creamy background make this one of the prettiest seeds in my collection.
