Edamame / soy bean (Dwarf)

$4.99

💗 All our seeds are grown organically in Australia -> What makes our seeds special? 💗

  • Yes you can grow your own delicious fresh edamame! No GM or food miles here, all organic from your own back yard. *Currently only yellow seed available, black soy bean seed will be available in the next few months*.
  • Sow a new batch every month for a continuous supply over the warm months.
  • Eat: To eat as edamame, harvest the furry pods once the bean starts to bulge but are still green on the outside. Gently steam or boil, and lightly salt before popping out and enjoying.
  • Size: This is a dwarf bean – grows to around 40cm tall. Great in large pots or grow bags.
  • Sowing: Sow seed indoors in early spring in individual punnets and plant out once the risk of frost has passed in your area. Do not soak bean seed as this risks rotting – plant into damp seed raising mix and don’t water again until the soil feels dry. Check out our corn seed sowing guide for a free and easy trick for sowing into individual punnets. Or sow direct in garden beds in late spring and summer, once the risk of frost has passed in your area.
  • Planting: Grows well in full sun and part-shade. Space seeds around 20cm apart.  Beans fix nitrogen from the atmosphere so don’t need a lot of fertiliser added, but do appreciate a soil enriched with compost, worm castings and gentle manures (cow, sheep, horse).

Please note seeds can be shipped across Australia, but due to quarantine restrictions we cannot ship seed to WA or Tasmania.
