"Butterbean" is a term used to describe certain small, flat seeded lima beans. There is no separate botanical classification for a butterbean. It is basically a description of the way that they are prepared for cooking. Whereas most limas are grown to the dry stage, butterbeans are generally shelled fresh while in the late green stage, cooked and buttered.
