HOW TO GROW OKRA

Heat loving annual that is usually direct seeded but may be started indoors 4–6 weeks before last frost in short season climates. Soak seeds overnight prior to sowing. Apply bottom heat to keep 80–90˚F for fast germination. Seedlings require ample water. Use row cover for added warmth to plants and soil. Tolerates soils with heavy clay and intermittent moisture but frost can damage the pods. The fruits are harvested when immature and eaten as a vegetable. The seed pods rapidly become fibrous and woody, and to be edible, must be harvested within a week of the fruit having been pollinated. There is not enough heat units to grow okra in the Maritime Northwest or Northeast. Soil pH 5.6–7.5. Hardiness zones 5–11. Annual.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 560 seeds per ounce. Germination in optimal conditions: 50%. Federal germination standard: 50%. Usual seed life: 5 years. Isolation distance for seed saving: 1 mile.

The pods are slender and elegant with 5 points. Tall, open plants. Attractive flowers may be stuffed or used as a garnish. Cream colored flowers are also edible and maybe stuffed or used as garnish. Commonly used to thicken soups and stews. Okra is considered a delicacy in the American Deep South, particularly when breaded and deep fried. Okra is also known as lady's fingers and gumbo for either the vegetable or a stew based on it. Okra is a popular health food due to its high fiber, vitamin C, folate content and is high in antioxidants. Okra is also a good source of calcium and potassium. Naturopathic medicines include okra for intestinal issues due to its mucilaginous properties. Tags: Color: Red, Shape: Elongated, Specialty: Heat Resistant, Season: Summer, Seed: Safe Seed Pledge.
