Okra - Clemson Spineless - Abelmoschus esculentus

Tender Annual. This spineless variety of okra is the most popular. The 4'-5' tall plants produce medium-green pods measuring 3"-9" long. Clemson 80 is earlier and higher yielding than Clemson Spineless. Okra is used as the thickening agent in Cajun gumbo, but it also can be boiled, broiled, fried, roasted, steamed, canned, or pickled. Use dried pods in flower arrangements! The plant has attractive, edible flowers.

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.. Expect good yields on this 4'-tall, bushy plant.

Harvesting & Storage: Pick okra pods when they are 2"-3" 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.
