105 days — 'Belakaya' is a very hardy and prolific soy variety. Dry at about 105 days, it can be picked earlier in its green stage for edamame. The plants grow twenty-four to thirty inches tall producing pods that contain two to three seeds each. The beans are small to medium in size and have a greenish tint but are mostly yellow in color with a black hilum (eye). They are not uniform; some are smooth, some are wrinkly.

Our original source was soy collector and preservationist, Chris Martin (CO MA C), whose source was Dr. Alan M. Kapuler of Peace Seeds in 2007. 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.
