Detailed Product Info

Okra is outrageously beautiful. Its hibiscus-like flowers and broad leaves provide a tropical feel to the garden. The edible pods are terrific when harvested young and prepared properly. Many displaced southerners pine for the flavor and silky texture of a well-made okra dish; those who do not know its charms from youth are generally slow to embrace it. But do try. The plants are so beautiful you will not regret growing them.

Growing Instructions

Okra is extremely intolerant of cold. Start indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost and transplant outdoors after all threat of frost has passed. Some gardeners give okra a heat boost by covering it with row cover until it produces flowers. Okra can thrive in moderate soils. Keep watered, but allow to dry out between waterings. Harvest pods while still tender, up to 5-6" in length.
