Description
Fiskeby
95 to 105 days, determinate — Research shows that along with being early maturing, the twelve to eighteen inch tall plants are tolerant of many types of stress making it a good choice for gardeners who live in short season locations.

A Swedish variety bred by Sven Holmberg. Can be used fresh for edamame (pronounced "ed-uh-mah-may") or allowed to mature, used dry.  'Fiskeby' is very nutritious with up to 40% protein, as well as being high in calcium, iron and vitamins A, B1, B12 and C.  Each packet contains 25 to 30 seeds.

  2. Sven Holmberg, was once a leading plant breed in Northern Europe. His long career, beginning in the 1930s, spanned nearly fifty years.  His primary focus was on breeding soy varieties for the extremes of the far north and his successes assured his position in the history as a preeminent soybean breeder.
