Germination: During germination the seeds can be extra-sensitive to soil water levels, therefore soaking seeds is NOT a good idea. Soybean seeds are known to rot in waterlogged soils.

Growing in Containers: Ideal for raised beds or extra large pots but soybeans will not yield in average pots.
Fertilizing (Garden): Plant in a garden bed recently amended with quality compost. No additional fertilizing is required.
Watering (Garden): Water young plants regularly to establish. Mature plants will benefit from deep watering once per week.

Harvesting: Edamame is harvested when pods are fresh, plum and vivid green. Soybeans are determinate, meaning that most of the beans will ripen at one time. The pods can also be left on the plant to harvest a dry beans; in this case wait until 90% of leaves have fallen at which point the plants can be cut down and hung to dry in a sheltered, well ventilated location until pods are fully cured (less than 9% moisture content).
