- Protein-rich rare variety
- Naturally adds nitrogen to the soil
Edamame beans (soya beans) have been praised by the experts in the growing trials and are now available to you!
An excellent source of protein you can eat these beans boiled, steamed or stir fried. In all these forms they are delicious and nutritious. They give you a long crop from late summer to autumn when you grow them in a sunny site.
These large creamy beans are nutritious and filling- a great addition to vegetarian dishes and bean casseroles. The latest way to eat them, popular in top restaurants, is steamed in their whole pods and dipped in rock salt to taste.
We recommend you sow three seeds in a small pot in late spring. Simply fill a pot with compost specially formulated for young plants, to the top and make a deep depression in the centre of the pot with your finger. Pop the large seeds in the dent and cover. Water the surface of the pot.
Once the seeds germinate keep watering daily. When the seedlings have about two leaves, remove all seedlings except the strongest one to grow on into plants you can transplant outside from late June for handsome harvests from August.
Space plants 15cm (6in) apart when you transplant them outside.
