Earlier this year a few of us (including Andy Hamilton) posted about attempting to grow soy beans in the UK. I was wondering how we all got on?
I had a reasonable crop - the ones sown direct seemed happier than those transplanted. Two problems though:
- the beans were quite small - nowhere near as big as japanese restaurant edameme.
- the pods had a hairy 'skin' on them which came away from the pod when boiled. this meant that if you wanted to serve them as edameme you ended up with a mounthful of fur (if you popped the pod open with your mouth, that is).
I see from the seed catalogues that there are a couple of new varieties for next year, so I'll probably give them a try to see if they're any better.
Any other success or failure stories?
