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. Soaking okra seed overnight prior to planting seems to speed germination. Most heirloom okra varieties are large plants; allow plenty of space.
