How to Grow Shinonome Soybeans
Sowing too early in the season might induce thick plant growth, plant in the early summer. Warm day temperatures and cool night temperatures are vital for good results. The seeds will rot or not germinate altogether if overwatered. Keep soil moist but not soaked before they sprout. After sprouting, allow for the soil to dry between waterings.
Fertilize as needed when the plant appears pale in midseason; avoid high nitrogen content. Soy beans prefer a temperate climate and have no frost tolerance. No staking is required. In cooler climates, soy beans do well under frames, unheated greenhouses, or cloches. Plant next to nitrogen-hungry crops for maximum compatibility.
Harvesting Shinonome Soybeans
Harvest when the leaves have changed from bright green to a slight yellowish-green color. After harvest, leave the roots in the ground to decay and release their nitrogen content to enrich the soil with nitrogen for other crops.
The Shinonome variety is perfect for making processed soybean products such as tofu, soymilk, miso, and soy sauce. Use miso and soy sauce to flavor and enhance a variety of dishes. Tofu and soymilk can be the main protein-adding components to vegetarian fare.
Tips From Our Gardeners
“I love soymilk because it is one of the only plant-based types of milk having a significant amount of protein. The Shinonome variety is the best one we stock for making soymilk at home.”
