'Gaia' is an early maturing, variety. The plants are compact and the soybeans are beautiful, lime-green with black saddles. Excellent as edamame
, pronounced "ed-uh-mah-may," or harvested later as a dry bean.
Discovered in 2010 by Owen Bridge of Annapolis Seeds in their garden where a green-seeded edamame
and a black seed variety grew the previous year. Introduced in 2013. Each packet contains 25 to 30 seeds.
