'Gaia' is an early maturing, variety.  The plants are compact and the soybeans are beautiful, lime-green with black saddles. Excellent as edamame, pronounced "ed-uh-mah-may," or harvested later as a dry bean.
Discovered in 2010 by Owen Bridge of Annapolis Seeds in their garden where a green-seeded edamame and a black seed variety grew the previous year. Introduced in 2013. 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.
