Young soybeans or edamame are soybeans that are harvested when young and soft. Soybeans have been cultivated in Japan since olden days, but it is said that people started eating them as edamame in the Edo period (1603-1867). Today, big and sweet varieties for edamame are widely consumed and have become a summer favorite in Japan.
Edamame’s nutritional value includes antioxidant soy saponin as well as soy isoflavone.
At Suzuki Farm, we carefully select the soybean varieties and pay close attention to the timing to harvest so we can deliver you even more delicious edamame. It goes really well with beer and Japanese sake on a hot summer day!
