Burgundy Okra Seed - Naturally Produced

In addition to being tasty, and a Southern garden tradition, this variety of okra is very ornamental, with purple stems and pods.

Okra is an annual, and is part of the same family as Hibiscus

Okra is one of the "itchy" plants, I usually wear long sleeves when working around okra plants.

Plant okra in spring, after all danger of frost has passed. Okra does best in rich, well-drained soil, and requires full sunlight to thrive. Will tolerate dry, but not drought, conditions.

Plant seed approximately ½ inch deep, plants should be no closer than 6 inches apart.

Okra can grow very tall, 5 foot or more in optimal conditions

Pick pods when young and tender. Leave a few on the plants to become woody., and save your seed for next season from them.

Each packet contains a minimum of 40 fresh viable seed, naturally produced in Zone 7b (North Carolina) for 2014 gardening season

Happy Gardening!!
