The Edamame Green Soybean Tohya, 'Glycine max', is so high in protein, it is called "the meat without bones" When boiled, the beans are popped out of the pod into your mouth for a culinary delight. Edamame means "beans on a brach" and has quickly become a favorite vegetable. They are 40% protien, high in vitamins A, B, calcium and iron. They are also very high in fiber and essential fatty acids. Soy products are credited with lowering cholesterol. Tohya is a short season variety that is perfect for growing anywhere in North America and it is currently the most popular variety in Japan.Plant after the last average frost date. Tohya prefers loamy, slightly acid, well drained soils. Harvest in the green shelling bean stage. Wait for the pods to get plump but while they are still green. If the foliage starts to turn yellow, pull up the whole plant and harvest.
