90 to 120 days — The plants grow twenty-four to thirty inches tall and produce pods containing two to three beans each. 'Besarabka' was received into the National Genetic Resources Program from Bulgaria in 1973.

We don't know much else about the origin but there is an indoor market located in the center of Kiev called the "Besarabka Market." 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.
