Detailed Product Info

This terrific edamame variety was sent to us by Jack Algiere of Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in Pocantico Hills, near Tarrytown, New York. He's been saving it for many years, as the variety is no longer available in catalogs. But now we've got it--and we can report that it is really lovely. The beans are bright green with a hint of purple when at the ripe green edamame stage and then mature to deep black when dry. (Any color in the fresh beans fades upon cooking.) If you've never grown soybeans in your garden, it's worth a shot: in addition to fixing nitrogen and yielding tasty beans, the plants sport velvety green leaves that are very attractive.

Growing Instructions

Sow after frost, once soil has warmed, spaced at 6-12". Plants grow about 30-36 inches in height. Harvest the entire crop at once, when you see the first hint of yellow in the pods. Steam the whole batch and freeze any extra, shelled or left in the pod to shell after defrosted and before use.
