Bean – Envy Edamame Soya

$3.48

This ancient Asian vegetable is rapidly growing in popularity in America. Edamame translates as “beans on branches” — it grows bunches of beans on well-branched shrubby plants. Each green pod contains two or three delicious seeds with a sweet, nutty flavour. Earliest green soybean. Upright 61-cm (2′) plants ripen early. Boil fresh in the pod at green stage. After boiling remove beans from pod to eat. Or, leave to mature and use as a dry, bright green bean. Exceptional quality and yields.
