The pods can be left on the bush to mature for dried beans that have a black seed coat with green interior. These are used to make numerous Asian bean dishes. Prized in Korea for its health benefits.

Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in late spring after last frost in a warm, sunny location when soil temperature is above 58F. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Warm day temperatures (75-85F) and cool night temperatures are important for best results. For fresh eating, harvest when the leaves have changed from bright green to a slight yellowish-green color. For dried beans, leave on the bush until pods have dried. No staking.

Culinary tips: Use for Chinese douchi, which is known as fermented black soybeans or Chinese fermented black beans. The black soybeans are fermented then salted. Use dried beans in soups and over rice. Delicious prepared as edamame, a traditional Japanese treat, by boiling fresh pods for 3-4 minutes in salted water and serve them as an appetizer. Blanche fresh beans and freeze to store your extra harvest for winter eating.
