Wow! When Fledderjohn's fresh, plump pods are wonderfully buttery as edamame / maodao at roughly the 65 day mark. Phil Zacks of Crystal Lake Illinois named this variety after his grandfather who was gifted seeds from a missionary friend returning home from Japan.

Fledderjohn's bush plants are tidy, not sprawling, and reach a height of 2.5 feet. As with all soybean, they are of great beneficial to your garden as their nitrogen fixation ability facilitates building healthy soil.
