We are growing this in Arizona and having a fair amount of luck. So far the plants are thriving well. It helped to start them in peat pots. The soil here is clay, so after they had their second leaves we transplanted them into the garden. For our first time they haven't been much trouble yet. Easy seeds to grow.

I got onto my whole edamame kick after sampling a cold summer salad with edamame, corn, black beans and tomatoes at Trader Joe's. Frozen edamame, especially shelled, is very expensive in the supermarket, so I decided this year that I would add them to my vegetable garden. Beans are so easy to grow, plus, as a legume, they enrich the soil.

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.

I recommend these seed to anyone. I even got enough to save some seeds for next season. They tasted great!

The Good: Nearly 100% germination rate. Grew quickly in a hot Minnesota summer. Beans come at the very end (1.5 - 2 months). I saved the entire crop (500 beans or so) for next year, so I can't comment on the taste, but they looked great.

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.

Mesh Net: [...]

I planted them and they came up. That's pretty much what you would expect. I give them 5 stars for not not coming up.

We may have gotten a bad batch or damaged seeds. I tried several methods of germination and none of them produced a plant. The 5 packets of seeds we ordered came in ONE plastic ziplock back.

Hopefully this company will replace them soon, before we miss the growing season.

I did two rows of soybeans, and though they are still growing, I'm going to write the review now.

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 like the fact that I received the product very fast. As for the seeds, I germinated 5 seeds just to give it a try on 6/8/2013 and so far so good. every seed was successful they grew very fast. As of right now they are 6in. tall.

I can't wait to start on the rest of the seeds, I just got to start a bed for these.
