I have never grown them before. What should I do next and how should I prepare them for storage. 13th September 2017 at 3:23 pm #42285 charlesModerator Jeanette, no leaves means no more growth so pick them now, or twist out plants and shell the beans later when you have time. Place shelled beans on a tray on a sunny windowsill to dry. 14th September 2017 at 6:28 am #42289 HawfinchParticipant Or, depending on how many you have, boil them in the shell for about 5 minuntes, sprinkle a bit of sea salt over and then eat the beans only, not the shells, and enjoy them as Edamame, tastes fantastic. 14th September 2017 at 7:42 am #42290 jjat8cvParticipant Thank you both for your advice. I will try some now as you suggest Hawfinch and dry the rest for future use. Author Posts Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
