Growing Instructions:
Two weeks after the last frost of the season, sow the seeds 1" deep in a light, well-draining soil that is at least 60°. You’ll want to give about 12" of space between the plants. While growing, the plant should have 2 1/2 inches of water a week. The plants can grow to be up to 3 feet tall, so they may benefit from having a source of support, such as a pole or trellis. Although edamame beans are practically immune to many small pests, animals such as rabbits and dears like nibbling on them, so it would be a good idea to protect the plants with something like a bird net. You can pick the pods when they are plump and still green in color; waiting until they turn yellow will give them a flavor similar to lima beans. This plant loves sun; place in a sunny location with well-drained soil. Sow seeds every two weeks for consistent harvesting. After 10 days, the plants should poke through the soil.
