Black Pearl

90 to 110 days — 'Black Pearl' plants grow from thirty to thirty-six inches tall. The seeds are dull-black colored, medium to large in size, round and slightly dimpled on the sides. They can be harvested at the green, edamame (pronounced "ed-uh-mah-may") stage at about 90 days, and reach the mature, dry stage in roughly 110 to 115 days.

Our original seed source was soy collector and 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.
