How to Grow
Thin to strongest seedling per group when plants are 1-2" high. Provide plants with 1-1 1/2" of water weekly. Grow okra in a different place every year to avoid problems with pests and diseases.
Pick young okra pods that are 2-3" long and harvest them every other day to encourage continuous production. Cut pods from the stem just above the cap. Store pods for several days in the refrigerator in a plastic bag. Okra pods are delicious steamed, in soups, and fried.
