Nen Feng

110 to 130 days, indeterminate — The plants reach about thirty inches in height with pods containing three, and many times, four beans each. The uniform, medium-yellow seeds are a good choice for edamame (pronounced "ed-uh-mah-may").

Some sources describe the origin as China in 1957. According to the USDA GRIN, all of the Nen Feng series of soybeans were received in the U.S. about 1987 and noted as being developed after 1980. 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.
