85 days, determinate — Its name literally means "Green Giant" in French. The plants reach nineteen to twenty-two inches in height, have purple flowers, and two to three beans per pod. The seeds are pale green with black eyes, oval shaped, and medium in size. 

Our original seed sample was from soy variety preservationist Chris Martin (CO MA C). It was originally donated to the USDA Soybean Germplasm Collection in 1950 by the Section de Botanique, France and assigned accession number PI 189963. 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.
