Okra – Silver Queen – Abelmoschus esculentus

Soil & Water: Okra prefers moderately rich soil. Its low water requirements make it an easy plant to grow.

Planting & Growing: Okra is heat loving. Sow seeds outside in spring after all danger of frost has passed, when the soil temperature has reached 70F. It’s a good succession plant after early, spring-maturing crops. Expect good yields on this 4′-tall, bushy plant. Makes a great trellis for pole beans or other vining plants.

Harvesting & Storage: Pick okra pods when they are 3-5″ long for tenderness. They are best tasting when eaten the same day. Some people develop a contact dermatitis while handling okra; avoid the itchiness by wearing a long-sleeved shirt and gloves.

Germination: 5-15 Days
Height At Maturity: 6-7′
