Japanese Soybean (Hakucho)

The biggest and best tasting edamame we have found. Simply marvellous, these Japanese-bred soya-bean have a great combination of plumpness and delicious olive/green beans.


Direct sow in full sun from late May to mid-June, once the soil has warmed up. Cold, damp soil can result in poor germination or rotted seeds. Optimal soil temperature: 21-32°C (70-90°F), ideal pH: 5.8-6.2.
Sow seeds in well drained soil 2-5cm 1-2”) deep, 5-10cm (2-4″) apart, in rows 60cm (24″) apart.  Use 1 cup of complete organic fertilizer for every 3m (10′) of row.
Soybeans are very ornamental, with attractive leaves and plentiful flowers. They can be used to make low, temporary hedges or planted in small groups in a border. You can also grow them in containers, where they make for a pretty and unique addition to a container garden

We use them as edamame and as a main dish Soybean and greens
