Okra

Okra

(Abelmoschus esculentus) This African native and staple of the Deep South really thrives on heat! Slaves from Angola called okra “ngumbo” which became gumbo, a popular name for several okra dishes to this day. Soak seeds overnight to speed germination. Plant directly outdoors when soil temperature is 70-75 degrees. Plant 2-3 seeds in rows 10-12 inches apart. Most heirloom okra varieties are large plants; allow plenty of space. Pick pods at no larger than 3-4 inches to keep them from going to seed. Pick often.
