EDAMAME, Lucky Lion

Lucky Lion variety is prized for its high yields, high quality and excellent nutty taste. It has a crisp texture and is buttery rich in flavour. There are generally three beans per each vivid green pod. Lucky Lion is mid-early maturing and should be staked because of its prolific yields. All pods should be harvested at the same time, when they are plump but still green. Warm day temperatures and cool night temperatures are important for good results. Easy to grow.
