Edamame beans have been praised by nutritionists and head chefs alike and are now available to you to grow on your plot. Edamame beans are the immature beans of soya beans. 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.

An excellent source of protein you can eat these beans boiled, steamed or stir fried. In all these forms they are a delicious way of getting nutrients into you and your family.

Both edamame and soya give you a long crop from late summer to autumn when you grow them in a sunny site with supports.

With large seeds they are easy to sow directly outdoors from April. Keep an eye on the weather; if it’s a cold or snowy start to April, hold off sowing for a couple of weeks.

For full sowing, planting out and support information please consult your seed packet which is air-tight and contains your seeds ensuring maximum freshness.
