Cannellini on Fire
An heirloom I discovered from some cannelini that I saved one year
and have been growing for a few years. The parents are Cannellini
and tongue of fire. The crossed one year and I loved the way they
looked some much that I grew them out for two years and found
they're really beautiful!
Soy Beans Glycine max
High yeilding, excellent for early edamame or to grow out for tofu.
Beans are green and medium sized and are my personal favorite for
edamame (boil pods whole for a few minute strain and salt. Eat them
as a snack holding stem bite whole pod and pull it out of your mouth
catching the beans on your teeth as you remove the pods. The salt mixes
with the beans in your mouth and the result is a unique experience!).
Plants are productive with loads of pods each bearing 3-4 medium sized
matte black soy beans. Black soybeans have a richer flavor then green
soybeans and are great for edamame, tofu, and tempeh.
