Early 80-day variety is great for the North. Perfect for Edamame, fresh shelling or dried; nice green-colored beans have good flavor; developed by the late Prof. Elwyn Meader, UNH.

Review:

I had no issues growing these in northeast Kansas. I believe we bounce between a zone 4 and 5. Summers are inconsistent here. I would say we were a bit on the mild side this year, as we were last year. Just like any bean, don't plant too early. I've made that mistake with green and wax beans the first few years I started gardening. I always get anxious and try to start in April. I did not put these beans in until May. When the plants filled out, I pulled them up, roots and all. I set the mountain of plants on the porch and started stripping the pods as I sat on the steps. This variety is very bountiful. I had no idea the pods would cluster like they did. I had 3 large beans per pod in most. I only planted one packet of beans and harvested enough pods to fill a couple of one gallon ice cream pails full of pods at harvest time. Be prepared to do a lot of shelling. I'm not even sure if it resulted in a half gallon of beans, but there's enough to roast for healthy snacks. Great raw too.

Review:

I planted these in my own garden and not one grew. But, I planted them 3 blocks away for a friend who struggles with food insecurity and she has had a bountiful crop. I'm confused. Same climate conditions, my soil is better, same sun and drainage.......I bought both packages at the same time and stored them in the same place. I did soak mine before planting and not hers....

What are the pros? Flavor and Quantity

What are the cons? Attracts Stink Bugs

Review:

These beans turned out better than I expected. I planted them closer than recommended in questionable soil and just left them to grow. I didn't mulch at all and just did a little weeding at the start. The patch is now covered with weeds. Planted 5/13. Today is 7/19 and we are beginning to harvest. Each plant probably has 50 -70 pods and they are delicious with a buttery mild flavor. The plants are covered in stink bugs. The stink bugs don't seem to damage the plant or the pods (or affect the flavor) - not sure what they are doing there. There was damage from Japanese Beetles, they ate some of the leaves of the plant. The pods seem to unaffected. We have Rabbits here but they are not eating the pods as far as I can tell. I planted in rows about 4-6 inches apart and thinned very little. We did have tremendous amounts of rain.

Review:

I got a little eager and planted my first batch too early - unexpected cold front kept the beans from germinating very well. My second attempt turned out much better. The plants were quite prolific and the steamed edamame tasted great! We froze some in small Pyrex containers - they cook up nicely in the microwave for a quick healthy snack - kids love them. Highly recommend! Had no idea we could grow these in Utah - zone 6.

Review:

These did pretty good in zone 7 (2012 & 2011, not as good last year due to drought but still produced (blackland prairie)). Got one good harvest out of them this year and went back to get the rest a couple of days later and they were eaten :P will have to see if I can spray them with homemade pepper spray next year
