I'm going to try it for the first time myself this year. Let's hope we get good harvests.

I planted edamame in my SFG two years ago. I planted them just like other beans, 9 to a square and I planted four squares.

A few things I remember about growing edamame... One is that you only get one picking, when the green pods look full, you can pull the whole plant up to pick off the bean pods -- that's kind of nice though! The second thing I remember is that I was very disappointed with the amount of beans I got. Out of the four squares I planted, I got maybe one cup of beans. So if you want enough for freezing, plant more. And last but not least, I learned that deer prefer them over French filet beans -- ha! We rarely get deer in our garden since we live in the middle of our small town, but one night they came (obvious evidence left in the aisles) and ate the tops off the soy beans and left the nearby filet beans alone. That may account for the low yield...I could have gotten maybe two cups if not for those deer, eh?

I plan to grow them again this year. The packet (bought from Territorial
Seed) says to space them 2" to 4" apart, so I think I might try for 16
per square this year...or maybe just 13 per square like this:



It would fun if those of us who plant them would keep track of how many cups of beans you get per what you planted. Maybe we can find a variety that gets better yields.

We grew it for the first time last year. We love the stuff and it is so easy to steam a handful, sprinkle with a little kosher salt and you have a great tasting healthy snack. We used them in our stir fry as well. We planted 4'x4' of them 9 per sq and that was the perfect amount for us, so this year we wanted to freeze some extra so we are growing a 4'x8' plot.

Edamame anyone?

Post  sherryeo on 4/27/2011, 12:21 pm

I love edamame and definitely want to try growing it. I think I read that you can grow it for a fall crop down here, so maybe I'll be able to try a few squares once I get a couple more sfg boxes later this year!

ribarr, how many in your family? I may be the only person in my family who'll eat these as a snack. But I imagine the others would eat it mixed into other dishes. Just wondering how many mouths you fed from the 4X4 devoted to edamame.

That's not the information that I received. I was told 1 every 12 to 18 inches. I translate that into 1 square.

I'll let you know how it turns out.

Bart, Maybe you can interplant the other 8 seeds now for a second crop.
