How to Grow Tankuro Soybeans
Sowing too early in the season might induce thick plant growth. It is best to sow 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; avoid high nitrogen content. Soy beans prefer a temperate climate and have no frost tolerance. These plants may need support when they get large but can be fine without it. In cooler climates, soy beans do well under frames, unheated greenhouses, or cloches. Plant next to nitrogen-hungry crops for maximum compatibility.
Harvesting Tankuro Soybeans
Harvest the pods when soybeans swell. These are perfect for snacks and eating promptly. Another option is to harvest 25-30 days later for the dry beans. To get dry beans, wait for the plant to turn brown then completely dry it by hanging the plants upside down. Beans can be stored in jars in a cool dry place for quite some time. 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 young green pods are best steamed, boiled, or stir-fried. Blanch fresh beans and freeze to store your extra harvest for a winter treat. Prepare edamame, a traditional Japanese treat, by boiling fresh pods for 3-4 minutes in salted water. Serve them as a healthy appetizer or snack. Soybeans are rich in protein. The dry beans can be made into flour, soy milk, or soaked and boiled into soups.
Tips From Our Gardeners
“Soybeans are one of the best protein options for all our vegetarian and vegan friends. I try to limit my meat consumption for various reasons and edamame has been a lifesaver.”
