    Tsuruoka is known for "dadacha-mame" (?????), a brand of soybean, which have been called "the king of edamame"; they are also used for other products such as natto and in manju. There are two theories as to the origin of the name: one is that it derives from dadacha, the Shonai dialectical word for "father" – gagacha is the dialectical word for "mother", while the other is that the beans came from Date, Fukushima, and were originally called Date-no-chamame, which became Date-chamame and then Dadacha-mame.
