OKRA

OKRA

(30 varieties to choose from)

Plant after the soil is warm, usually when melons are planted.  Do not plant in cold soil.  Pick the pods when they are about as long as your little finger for top quality.  Height of plant depends upon how often you pick the okra.  The more you pick it the taller it grows.  Packets will contain 30 to 50 seeds (more on some varieties) which should plant a 25 foot row.
