Friend Wife recently tasted boiled edible soybeans, and loved 'em. This is good, because they are healthy for her.

So, I've just ordered seed. But don't know much about the care and feeding of it.

Anybody ever grown any? If so, any information about cultivation, care, fertilization, etc. etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Also would like any recipes besides plain boiled.

Brook, I love soy beans toasted in the oven. Really good. Some of the sugar cane farmers grew soy beans down here a couple of years ago, but gave it up and went back to sugar cane. I wish I knew more about how they grew them, but I don't recall the particulars...Lisa

edamame including recipes.

We are going to plant the " Butterbean" variety from Johnny's.

Thanks, Bud.

A very helpful site.

I had already ordered the Sayamusame variety from Territorial Seed. Don't have the new Johnny's catalog yet, so didn't know they have them. Sounds like Butterbean is an improved strain, though.

Ah,well. Maybe next year?

Brook, good recipes for edamame can be had at (with direct links to recipes)

Bon Appetite

Food & Wine

a superb vegetarian recipe for squash & edamame stew with smoked cheddar dumplings at

and finally check the Mayo Clinic Health Oasis Virtual Cookbook. They change their recipes every so often, but edamame appears quite often.

Definitely more to edamame than boiled. Good eating.
