Soybean, Envy (Organic)

Glycine max. Green. 75 days.

A good choice for early and/or short-season edamame production. Unlike many soybeans, Envy starts the season very vigorously in our cool spring soil. Plants grow to 2′ with an upright growth habit. Delicious as edamame, the green seeds can also be cooked as a dry bean if harvested before they shatter. Bred by the late Professor E. M. Meader, of the University of New Hampshire.

Direct sow 1” deep when soil temps have reached 65°F, at least 80 days before frost for edamame, but before the end of June for dry beans. Plant at 2-4” in-row spacing with 12” between rows. Keep soil consistently moist for best yields. For dry beans, pull entire plants and allow to after-ripen before processing. Dry soybean pods will shatter profusely. Collect seeds that are fully dry. Shell by hand or by dancing on the dry pods, winnow or screen to clean. Test for dryness with a hammer – dry beans shatter, moist beans squish.

Seed Saving

Soybeans are self-pollinating and do not need isolation for seed saving purposes.
