When are limas ready to harvest?

Jackson Wonder. The pods are starting to fill out, but do I let them get as big as edamame? Do the pods start to yellow when they're ready or do you pick them when the pods are green? I want them as butterbeans, not dried beans.

I love limas but I don't know if it's worth growing them - these have taken forever (almost 90 days and I don't know if they're ready yet, they were supposed to be 75 days), seeded same time as my bush beans and those are done now.

Of course my 68-day tomatoes transplanted the first week of June haven't ripened yet.
