Highly ornamental and tasty!
For optimal texture and flavor, harvest often when the pods are young about 3" long. Easy to grow.
Contains 20 heirloom seeds
Planting Instructions: Prior to planting, soak okra seeds for 12-18 hours. Seeds should be sown in warm conditions, covered very lightly (depth of ½ inch) and kept reasonably moist until seedlings emerge.
Germination was excellent. This okra is beautiful and prolific. I've been mixing it with Clemson Spineless to make a colorful collection for cooking and freezing. I never knew there were so many colors. I plan to add Jing Orange next year. Do watch them for size. They grow quickly and get woody if left on the plant too long. I harvest every other day.
We planted these for the first time and have been very happy.
I planted two seedlings this spring, and they've stood up to a very wet FL summer. Once it gets going, it's very prolific, but the fruit has a tendency to get woody if you leave it too long.
