A rainbow for your kitchen table
50 days. This beautiful blend of red, orange, white and green not only looks beautiful in the garden, but also on your kitchen table! This okra grows fast and is great for canning, pickling, frying, or stews!
This exotic, tropical-looking, plant grows 3-6 feet tall and produces 2-3 inch, pale yellow with a maroon center, Hibiscus-like flowers. Narrow, ribbed, edible pods with pointed ends follow the flowers. The pods become tough as they increase in size, so harvest them when they are 3 inches long or less. Pick them daily to keep the plants in production
Okra is a warm-weather plant, soaking up full sunshine and thriving in any ordinary, well-drained garden soil. Start seeds indoors (4 to 6 weeks before the soil warms) everywhere but the hottest climates, soaking the seeds for 24 hours before planting them. Transplant when night temperatures are consistently above 50 degrees F, spacing the plants 10 to 12 inches apart. Fertilize the soil before planting and again when the plants begin to flower. If you want to pick the fruit for eating, they are ready to harvest when just 3 inches long, or may be left to mature to their full size. Pkt is 100 seeds. We cannot ship any Okra to California.
