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
