Edamame has been eaten for centuries in Japan. Traditionally, whole pods are blanched and lightly salted, served in a common bowl to be shared with friends. Also Excellent shelled and added to cold or hot pasta dishes or stir-fries. These young, cholesterol-free soybeans are rich in protein, calcium, iron, fiber, and vitamins A, B, and C. 'Chiba Green' grows large, dark green pods with a high percent of three-bean pods. Earlier to harvest than most, and well adapted for any growing area.

Variety Information: 'Chiba Green' is an early-harvest variety that produces large, dark green pods, a high percentage containing three beans. Beans have a nutty, earthy flavor.

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 65°F, ideally 70°–85°F. Successive Sowings: Every 7 to 14 days up to 80 days before your average first fall frost date. NOTE: In very hot summer areas, skip sowing as high heat approaches; temperatures consistently above 90°F will prevent soybeans from forming.

When to Start Inside: Not recommended; bean seedlings are sensitive to root disturbance.

Days to Emerge: 10 days

Seed Depth: 1"

Seed Spacing: A group of 2 seeds every 4"

Row Spacing: 24"

Thinning: When 1" tall, thin to 1 every 4"

Harvesting: To enjoy edamame as a shelling bean, harvest when pods get plump, but are still green; the whole plant may be pulled up. To harvest as a dry soybean, wait about another month, until 90% of the leaves have fallen off, and pods are hard. Pull up the whole plant, hang it in a dry place and allow to completely dry out. Place dried pods in a bag and shake seeds out of pods.

Tasty edamame

5 out of 5 stars Sep 8, 2020
These germinated well and the taste of the fresh edamame was outstanding. My toddler loved these just blanched in salt water.

These did beautifully in 2021! Germinated well in my elevated raised bed. Full Sun. Bees loved them too! I will do succession planting this year for a more constant supply. During the season I couldn't figure out how the beans were disappearing without any damage to the plants...then I found our youngest two-legged creature enjoying them right from the plant. Mystery solved!

Tastiest edamame

By far the tastiest edamame I've grown. They are reliable producers and germinated even better after pre-soaking and sprouting.

High Yield

Of all the Edamame seeds I've tried Botanical Interests gives the best yield here in the Sacramento area. They are the favorite home garden crop of my family as they are very sweet and tasty.
