Edamame is a type of immature vegetable soybean traditionally cultivated and consumed in East Asia. However, edamame is gaining traction in Western markets, particularly due to its health benefits. This publication examines the production, harvest, and postharvest considerations necessary to successfully grow edamame in Southwest Virginia based on experimental data from Virginia Tech's Kentland Farm.
