Okra - Perkins Long Pod, ORGANIC


Abelmoschus esculentus

ORGANIC. More okra per pod! For the grower and eater who are planning to slice up large coins to fry or stew, this variety produces big, bright green pods that stay tender a long time. Plants grow 4-6', harvest when pods are 6" long. Originally from West Africa, okra runs in the blood of many Southerners for whom summer is not complete without a plate of gumbo, lightly battered fried okra or a side of pickled pods. The stunning plants belong to the mallow family with the relation to hibiscus readily apparent by the flowers, so be sure to make ornamental plantings in addition to those marked for harvest.
