"Green or immature soybeans are similar to bright green peas or lima beans in color and flavor. Green soybeans have a firm, slightly crisp texture and are not mealy or soft. They are ready to use as food when the pods are bright green and plump. They stay in the "green" stage for five to 10 days depending on climatic conditions. If it is sunny and dry, they will mature a little more rapidly. If it is more damp, they will stay green slightly longer."--First paragraph
