Botanical Interests Organic Edamame Butterbean Seeds
Short season variety for an early season harvest of nutritious, buttery sweet beans. Use fresh or dried.
90 days. Edamame, edible green soybean, has quickly become one of our favorite vegetables. Edamame beans are 40% protein (11 grams in 1/2 cup of cooked beans), high in vitamins A and B, calcium and iron, and very high in fiber and essential fatty acids. Lower cholesterol and reduced risk of heart disease are just two of the benefits credited to the increased consumption of soy products. And to top this off, edamame taste incredible! Easy to grow.
This packet plants one 5 foot row.
When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost and when temperatures are warm, and successive sowings every two weeks for a continual supply.
When to start inside: Not recommended.
Harvesting: To enjoy Butterbean at its best as a shelling bean, harvest when pods get plump, but are still green; the whole plant may be pulled up. To harvest as a dry soybean, wait about another month, until 90% of the leaves have fallen off, and pods are hard. Pull up the whole plant, hang it in a dry place and allow to completely dry out. Place dried pods in a bag and shake seeds out of pods.

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
