Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring/early summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. Seeds will rot or fail to germinate if overwatered or soaked. Keep soil moist but not soaked during the germinating period. Fertilize as needed. Warm day temperatures (75-85F) and cool night temperatures are important for best results. Harvest when the leaves have changed from bright green to a slight yellowish-green color. No staking required.

Culinary tips: Excellent for sprouting and the soybean used for natto. Natto is a traditional Japanese food made from soybeans fermented with Bacillus subtilis. It is popular especially as a breakfast food because it is a rich source of protein and probiotics. Natto has a strong flavor, scent and slippery texture. Garnished with shiso and hot mustard. A Korean bean sprout side dish is called, kongnamul muchim, a mixture of soybean sprouts with garlic, green onions, sesame seeds, sesame oil and soy sauce.
