Bean, Soy, Midori Giant is rated out of 5 by 9.Rated 5 out of 5 by Garden Mama from Amazing Soy Beans This summer will be my 3rd year growing Midori Giant Soy Beans. They are delicious and grow vigorously. I harvested 25 lbs of soybeans off 40 plants. They are easy to grow. I planted the seeds with the Burpee Pea & Bean inoculant.Date published: 2016-01-21Rated 5 out of 5 by JennyH from delicious This is my 3rd year planting soybeans and I think these are my favorites yet! They were easy growers requiring very little care. The only care since planting was an occasional watering. Some of the plants grew normal while others growed to over 5 feet in length in a vine-like manner. They gripped each other and wrapped tightly and even grabbed onto the fence around my garden for support. Next year I will provide supports for them. The beans are like an addiction for me. They were very healthy and supplied a LOT of beans. I freeze packs of them to eat over the winter. Worked great last winter and I have no doubt they will be great again this winter. I am definitely getting these again next summer.Date published: 2015-08-18Rated 5 out of 5 by TustinTwinkleStar from Taste is Far Superior to Store Bought My first harvest of an 8' row planted very thickly was consumed in one sitting, these are so delicious! The taste and texture to me was like sweet boiled chestnuts. The plants grew very vigorously, even enduring an attack of stink bug nymphs (Jack's Dead Bug Brew took care of that)! They tend to lean because of the weight of the beans, so I put up some cheap wire plant support fence sections from the dollar store and that did the trick.Date published: 2015-07-30Rated 5 out of 5 by Chels21 from Mom loved them. Like most things in my garden, I grew these for my mom. I didn't have a lot of space for them, so I planted them in containers. The Midori giant shared space with grape vines, strawberries, squash, and my plum tree. They did pretty well and we were harvesting soybeans every other day, I could hardly keep up with them. I tried only a few, and turned out to be allergic to soy beans. The taste was also strange for me, I didn't care for it. But my mom loved them, I would grow them again just because they are fun and easy to grow.Date published: 2015-05-04Rated 5 out of 5 by Gardener13 from High yields! I planted these for the first time this year, and had great results! The plants are quite small, but they produce many pods per plant, and they don't stop producing pods until they are taken out of the ground!Date published: 2014-11-06Rated 5 out of 5 by FarmerTK from Patience Pays Off I was a little frustrated with these at first, probably because of the success of my Blue Lake beans planted nearby, but everything worked out well in the end. Planted 2 rows with 6 seeds each in late-May. By late-June all plants looked great, but no pods as yet. No until mid-July did the pods show. The beans within were rather flimsy for some time afterwards - hence my frustration - but in mid-August I got the desired results: an abundance of nice, chubby beans. Note: don't be afraid to let these sit until there's a little rust showing on the pods; the beans inside will be just fine - all green, no discoloration. Just pull the pods before they split open. I'd say my average yield was 3 beans per pod - if there was a fourth it'd be somewhat smaller than its pod mates but still decent size - so considering what edamame goes for retail, definitely a money-saver. Yes, it's a bit of work to steam and extract the beans, but well worth it considering their buttery taste - great as a snack. So whereas at one point I had sworn off wasting precious space on these next year, I will in fact be planting another batch come spring 2014.Date published: 2013-09-15Rated 5 out of 5 by modernfarmwife from Great Yields! I planted two beds of the Midori Giant and had outstanding yields! The germination was a little spotty, but I replanted and they caught right up. The bushes were healthy and vigorous. The pods were very plump and many had three beans instead of two. From the packet of 85 seeds I yielded 20 pounds of delicious soybeans!Date published: 2013-08-28Rated 5 out of 5 by CaitlinsCrops from Excited for Edamme I planted these about 6 weeks ago and they got off to a quick start in the 75* weather, nights at 55-65*. They have become significantly bigger than my other bush beans, so plan accordingly (mine are planted as my last row of bush beans). They look extremely strong and healthy, interesting to look at. I can't wait to enjoy the bounty.Date published: 2013-06-29
