Envy Soybean (75 Days)

Recommended substitute Karikachi Soybean


The literal translation of edamame is simply ‘beans on a branch’ but the term is generally used for the Soybeans that are to be eaten fresh rather than processed. Envy is the earliest of these. The 2’ tall plants produce a very heavy yield of bright green beans which can be either shelled or dried. Edamame type. 

75 seeds



Glycine max

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 75-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1” deep 

Outside Sowing: After the last frost with soil temperatures above 70-75ºF. Sow 2-3” apart. Planting in soil under 70ºF results in poor germination. 

How much does a packet plant: 10-12 foot single row 

Harvest:In the green snap stage for edamame, when seeds have formed but the pods are still green and tender. Harvest dried soybeans when pods are yellow and brittle and seeds are hard. 

Tips: Grow in light, well-drained soil, provide adequate, even moisture, especially at flowering time. Dry soil can result in low yields and fibrous pods. Do not over-fertilize with nitrogen which results in a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod growth.

Plants look great. Awaiting production which I anticipate will be good as I have had good results in past.

Freeport, ME
Never germinated

I planted these beans 2 times and got only one plant to germinate, and it is only 1/2 inch high. Kept it watered, so I think these seeds were defective.
