Okra

Plant between 12-18 inches apart. Okra likes warm conditions so plastic mulch and row covers can assist.

Once it flowers, the fleshy pods will be ready for harvest in two days. They are best when picked young and tender, no longer than 4″. Longer pods are really fibrous.

The last date to order items online is Sunday, March 22, 2020. Transplants will then be available for sale at the farm at a later date.

Okra · Clemson Spineless Everyone loves Clemson Spineless, as much for its no-pain harvest as for its extra-long, very meaty pods of dark green. The grooved, straight pods reach 7 to 9 inches long, with a full-bodied flavor okra lovers find utterly delectable. Note: This item is grown to order only!
Qty: 4 Pack · Cost: $5.00 ea
Okra · Jambalaya Early, high-yielding, dark green pods. Very uniform pods with 5 points. Large, robust flowers are also edible. Makes a great ornamental in containers. Edible Flowers: Deep fry flowers or eat them stuffed, or use fresh as a striking, exotic-looking garnish. Sweet and mild flavor. Note: This item is grown to order only!
Qty: 4 Pack · Cost: $5.00 ea
Okra · Red Burgundy In our trials, this was the most productive red okra we grew. Even in our less-than-ideal okra growing conditions, Red Burgundy produced delicious red pods. The plants are quite attractive too, with green leaves that contrast beautifully with the burgundy colored stems and midribs. Note: This item is grown to order only!
