Velvet Certified Naturally Grown Seed

120 days — The high yielding plants of 'Velvet' soybean can reach thirty-six inches in height and produce white flowers. The pods contain two to three beans each. The leaves and pods have silky white hairs (hence the name) that reportedly provide some insect resistance. Robert Lobitz noted that it was, "found as a mutation of the 'Blackhawk' variety in 1956." Our original seed sample was from soy variety preservationist Chris Martin (CO MA C). Each packet contains 25 to 30 seeds.
My favorite home gardening soybean
I've grown six different varieties of soybeans with the goal of making edamame and miso at home. This is the best soybean. I grow it in both spring and fall in Florida without pesticides, and I never have any pest or disease issues. The soybeans are small but always beautiful. I would cry if I ever ran out of these seeds.
