Has anyone tried growing them ?
A cookery prog said that when fresh they taste similar to a young Broad Bean , but more tender . I love those but they can be a lot of hassle for little return . Perhaps a few Soya in the poly to eat as a green bean ??? Any thoughts ? Thanks . Wink

Didnt know you could grow them here Blow-in. I have heard of them used for making soya bean milk and soya bean meal for livestock feeding. But used like a green bean, possible I guess.

Never grown them myself Blow-in.
Broad beans yes, no problem except I grew too many for my needs.
You might be interested in this....... Soya beans bred to suit the British possibly Irish climate.

Thanks for that link Wink . I didn't think you could grow them outside , hence the Q about polytunnel .
No mention of eating green tho . First I heard of it was Nigela Lawson on tv putting frozen green ones into a dish of Thai curry or something . I don't like curry but do like b/beans Laughing . Cheers .
