This packet sows up to 5 feet.
60-70 days to maturity.
Outdoors: Sow 1-2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 65°F, ideally 70°–85°F.
For Successive Sowings: Sow every 7-14 days up to 80 days before your average first fall frost date. In very hot summer areas, skip sowing as high heat approaches; temperatures consistently above 90°F will prevent soybeans from forming.
Indoors: Not recommended, as bean seedlings are sensitive to root disturbance.
