90 days — The moderately branched plants grow to fifteen to thirty two inches, are productive, are fairly early with pods containing two to three beans each.  The seeds are small, bright green with black eyes, and make a tasty edamame (pronounced "ed-uh-mah-may").  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.
