80 days — 'Envy' is an early bearing variety and very well suited for shorter season climates. The plants are erect, reach about two feet in height and produce pods each containing two to three green seeds. The beans can be enjoyed either fresh-shelled or dried. It is also a good variety to be enjoyed as edamame (pronounced 'ed-uh-mah-may'). Edamame is a popular snack in Japan, served with beer. Because it has health benefits that other snacks do not provide, it is becoming popular in the United States.

'Envy' was developed by the late Dr. Elwyn Meader of the University of New Hampshire. We have been growing it here on the farm in Oregon since 2008. According to USDA analysis, 'Envy' contains about 47% protein and 15% oil by weight and is stored in their collection as PI 567179. Each packet contains approximately 25 seeds. There are approximately 65 seeds in 0.5 ounce.

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.
