I can easily find them at most food stores . . Wegman's, Whole Foods, Shoprite.

I've only seen whole pods frozen in the frozen veggie section. Most supermarkets have them. And Costco has a frozen whole pod version that is very good, too. I've never seen them with the fresh vegetables, though.

I gave my dad edamame seeds last year to plant in his garden. The vines grew like crazy but the beans produced were smallish and not very abundant. But it was fun to see the outcome!

Don't know where you are located, but in my area (Southern California) all the chain groceries carry them in the refrigerated produce section (by the bagged salads), as do Whole Foods and Trader Joes. I've also seen them frozen in the freezer department, both shelled and in the pods.

frozen would be best this time of year - fresh would have to come from the southern hemisphere, making the 'fresh' description dubious. I have tried the frozen and they are great.

I tried to grow them too, and got almost no beans. My husband breeds soybeans, and says they are probably not very drought tolerant, so watering during podfill would be the solution

Whole Foods Salad bar. I like because you can get what you need fresh for a single meal. Salad bars are a great time saver when time is tight.
