Lima Bean

(Phaseolus lunatus) Probably better known as Butter Bean. African-Americans in the southern states of America had a superstition about these bean hulls - they had to be thrown into the road. They could not be burned, for that would inhibit the next crop, neither could they be fed to the cows or pigs, for that would mean the animals would get into the garden and eat the growing plants (Puckett). Split a Lima Bean in half and rub it over a wart. Toss the bean into a well, and the wart will disappear (H M Hyatt) (cf BROAD BEAN).
