Brown-seeded soybeans are uncommon in the United States. They are highly prized in Japan for their sweeter and nuttier flavor compared to the traditional green/tan seeded soybeans. Even though the seed for planting is brown, you will find the color of the bean dark green at harvest and it retains this color when cooked. This is a non-GMO, open pollinated soybean. The pod’s pubescence is light brown. The plant habit is semi-upright growing about 2 feet tall. Warm day temperatures and cool night temperatures are important for good results. This is an early maturing variety and seeds are sown from early May after danger of all frost to late June and harvested from late July to early September. Boil in salted water and bite or squeeze the beans from the pods directly into your mouth.
This is an early maturing, large seeded traditional edamame soybean. A consistently heavy producer with over 90% of the pods holding two or three seeds. It is a variety that is adaptable to all regions of the US. Great for both commercial use and home gardens.
Edamame are rich in calcium, iron, zinc and many of the B vitamins.
Edamame-or more properly, the soybeans they are made from-are a complete protein, containing all eight essential amino acids.
Edamame are the richest dietary source of isoflavones, which act as phytoestrogens and may help protect against cancer and osteoporosis. A half-cup serving of Edamame contains 35 mg of isoflavones.
The Food and Drug Administration states that “25 grams of soy protein a day [less than one ounce] as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.”
