Aoyu Certified Naturally Grown Seed

98 days, determinate — The plants are compact, reach about twenty inches in height, with stems that abruptly terminate. Its small, pale-purple flowers produce pods that contain, on average, three large, dull green beans that have dark-brown eyes (hilums).

Because 'Aoyu' beans have a buttery, sweet flavor, they are perfect for edamame (pronounced "ed-uh-mah-may"). Edamame is a popular snack in Japan, served with beer, like Americans eat popcorn or peanuts. Because edamame has health benefits that other snack foods do not provide, it is becoming popular in the United States. According to USDA analysis, 'Aoyu' reportedly contains over 35% protein, and 20% oil by weight.

Originally collected on January 20, 1930 in Hokkaido, Japan and donated to the National Seed Storage Lab and was given USDA accession number PI 86021. Our seed originated from bean and potato collector and curator, Robert Lobitz.

Grown here on the farm in Oregon, it has performed well in our varying weather patterns over the past few years. From hot and dry to cool and wet, 'Aoyu' has thrived and produced. Each packet contains 0.5 ounce, which is approximately 58 seeds.
