An tu bai chang lu dou

105 to 135 days, determinate — The plants of 'An tu bai chang lu dou' soybeans grow to about thirty-five inches tall, are multi-branching and high yielding, producing pods containing two to three beans each. Listed by the USDA as being in soy Maturity Group I, here on the farm in Northwestern Oregon, they are one of the latest maturing varieties that we grow. The seeds are medium size, green in color, contain about 45% protein and 21% oil, and are good at the green pod stage for edamame. At this stage, they also freeze well.

'An tu bai chang lu dou' was introduced into the USDA's seed bank accession number PI 540739 in 1990 by the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences. Our original seed stock was from soy variety preservationist Chris Martin (CO MA C). Each packet contains 25 to 30 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Soybeans are a tender plant and should be sown after all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed. Planting them at about the same time as corn is a good rule.

Sow seeds about one inch deep, three to four inches apart. Although you can plant in rows, they can be planted densely and allowed to form a canopy. This will help control weed growth. Soybeans are tolerant of drought and poor soil since they fix nitrogen. They will, however, benefit from fertile soil.

Soybean flowers are perfect (self-fertile) and cross pollination is almost non-existent, making saving seed easy. Allow pods to fully develop and dry on the plants.
