Looking for home-grown edamame? The Midori Giant Soybean is one of the earliest, growing 2 to 3 feet tall and producing pods with 2-3 buttery seeds. Plant directly into the garden after all danger of frost has passed and succession plant in 3-week intervals. Will grow anywhere in North America. About 70 days from planting to full maturity.
Each packet contains approximately 30 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Plant these warm weather legumes directly into rich, fast draining soil in spring after the soil has warmed. Sow 2-4 inches apart — one inch deep — in rows 24-36 inches apart. Thin as plants develop to 4-8 inches.
Harvest when full grown and ripe. Look for firm, sizable pods and pinch off with your thumbnail and fingers. Boil for at least 5 minutes before eating — do NOT eat raw!
