Edamame Bean – Chiba Green (Organic)


An early edamame soybean for fresh, steamed or dried use. Edamame is traditionally eaten in Japan where the pods are blanched, lightly salted and then served in one bowl to be shared with friends or family.

Chiba Green is earlier to harvest than most soybeans which makes it suitable for growing in the UK. It generally comes with 3 plump beans per pod that taste amazing fresh, steamed or dried and cooked to be added to stir-fries, salads or other dishes.
