Organic Butterbean Edamame
75 days to maturity
Sweet and buttery, this is the most flavorful edamame we’ve found. And so easy to grow! Marvelously abundant, each plant is loaded with 3-bean pods with over a week of prime edibility, a longer window than most varieties. If you’ve always wondered if home-grown edamame is better than at stores or restaurants, know this: Each year we grow several hundred plants just for ourselves. We enjoy edamame salted & steamed on summer evenings and fill our (three!) freezers with edamame to enjoy all winter long.

Direct Sow Only: Once soil is warm after last frost, sow 1″ deep every 3 inches & thin to 6″ with at least 18” between rows. Harvest young pods just as beans swell; we like to harvest an entire plant all at once. Sow every 2-3 weeks through mid-July for continual harvest. Inoculants often increase yields.
Seed Depth: 1 inch
Days to Germination: 8-10 days 70-80 F
Plant spacing after thinning: 5-6″
