I planted yellow wax beans and green string beans at the same time as these. They all seem to be doing well, although the soybeans seem to be coming along a little more slowly. perhaps because they get much bigger than the other beans.
I'll update once they mature and I have a harvest to report.
Update, Sept. 1, 2012
I enjoyed my edamame but realized I would need to plant quite a few more if I wanted to eat them in any quantity. They grew fine, but they do take longer to mature than regular stringbeans, and my edamame seemed slightly smaller (but no less tasty) than what you'd find in the store.
I have a leftover packet of seeds which I'll use next spring, but not sure I would otherwise grow these again, only because they take so long to mature (ready to pick sometime in August) while other veggies start producing by July. With my relatively small garden, they take up valuable real estate, so I have to carefully consider what I have room for, and what I don't.
But they were fun to grow. When you harvest, you pull out the whole plant as the pods ripen pretty much at the same time. You boil the pods for about 6 minutes and after they cool you can easily squeeze out the beans, which are a bright lime green and delicious in a cold salad with corn, black beans, tomatoes and a little salad dressing.
The Bad: Japanese beetles would have eaten everything had we not purchased a very fine mesh net with elastic to put around the stems (link below). Obviously, that cannot be blamed on these seeds, but the beetles only ate these plants, leaving everything else untouched.

Hopefully this company will replace them soon, before we miss the growing season.
So far just 1 plant has produced about 60 beans on average. This is without fertilizer. Next year I'm going to do 4 rows and spaced closer in together.
I can't wait to start on the rest of the seeds, I just got to start a bed for these.

I don't really like store-bought edamame but my husband does. I grew these for him but I even sort of like them. My 3-year old will eat them straight out of the garden. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Sarah

I grow beans in my garden so I was happy to grow soybeans as a legume which help to covert nitrogen into the soil. One can see the nodules on the roots. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Betha Hedenburg
