75 to 90 days, determinate — The plants grow twelve to twenty inches in height and have purple flowers. The medium-sized beans are pale yellow with a light brown saddle and contain about 19% oil and 43% protein.

The beans can be enjoyed either for edamame at about 75 days or dried after about 90 days.  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.

The parent stock was USDA accession number PI 379563. It was collected in Japan in 1973.  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.
