Hi Amy, Thanks for stopping by my blog. The edamame I grew this year were several varieties of Gardensoy but I can't say exactly which. I was participating in a national garden trial through the U of Illinois. I was sent samples of 6 varieties (I had numbers 12, 24, 32, 41, 42 and 43- how are those for original names) I don't know if they will be doing it again next year but it was fun. This was my first time growing edamame, even though I grew up on a farm where we grew acres and acres of soybeans. Sorry I can't be more specific.

Still, that is quite the inspiration!

That's quite a list - great idea! I think I'll have to do something like this on my blog. Thanks for sharing!

Great idea to compile a list like this! Cherokee Purple is my favorite heirloom tomato- even like it more than Brandywine, though I grow both. I think you'll like it.

Thanks for sharing this at the TGP- I saw some I would like to try!

Here are some of my seed selections and my two favorite sources. This is not an extensive list, but a list for those looking for easy to grow plants! They have organic selections as well.
