(Glycine max); non-GMO*; Bush bean; Fresh; Dry bean; Minimum 25 seeds
Gaia, a sturdy bush variety with a unique bi-color seed, was introduced in 2013 to the gardening community. Owen Bridge of Annapolis Seeds stabilized a serendipitous cross that appeared in his 2010 garden between a green-seeded edamame and a black seed variety. Soybeans are a reliable, low-maintenance, prolific crop, a sound choice to provision your pantry with nutritious, versatile dry beans. Additionally, they give back to your garden through soil-building nitrogen-fixation. Gaia's green pods are tasty fresh. Overall, it is an excellent producer for us.
