Did you know how seeds are collected from edamame? During the dry season, we are saving the seeds from edamame naturally on the tree. This can only be done in the dry season, because too much rain and humidity will make the edamame to be rotten instead of producing seeds.
First of all we must decide which edamame plant we want to take the seeds from. Usually it would be the most healthy and productive among the lot because we want to pick the best ones for our next season. It takes about one month for the plant to dry out and produce seeds. When the edamame has turned yellow and dried out, it’s the time for us to harvest the seeds.
