Gorgeous red okra is productive, tender, and tasty….
55 to 60 days from transplant. Open pollinated. Stunning burgundy red pods are long and slender, and stay tender to 6″. Tall ( 4 to 6 feet) plant has burgundy stems, leaf margins, and flower centers, and is pretty enough to grow in a flower border. Plant is very productive if you keep it picked. 1983 AAS winner. Okra requires quite a lot of heat to produce and does not like cold nights, so put it in your warmest spot if you are in the north, like against the south side of your house. Frost tender annual that is best planted after the soil is good and warm. Okra is not happy in spring weather.
