95 to 120 days — 'Jewel' plants grow to a height of twenty-four to thirty-six inches tall producing very high yields of pods containing three seeds each. The seeds are shiny, yellow and have a black saddle around the eye (hilum). 

Selected and named by Robert Lobitz from stock he obtained from the USDA who collected it in Manchuria, China. 'Jewel' reportedly averages a 37% protein content by volume. 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.
