Botanical Name
Abelmoschus esculentus

A high yielding and popular okra that produces abundant dark green, grooved, spineless pods. Grows to over 1m. Young pods are most tender (5-8cm long). Use pods in stir fries, soups, stews and relishes. The cream coloured flowers are also edible and may be stuffed. Plants are also quite ornamental. Okra loves warm climates, so in cooler areas start indoors and transplant to a sheltered, sunny position or greenhouse. 50 seeds.
