Planting Instructions: Sow seeds ¾ inches deep directly in the garden after the soil has warmed or start seeds in pots and transplant after all danger of frost has passed.

Since okra has tough seed coats, you can either scarify or soak seeds prior to sowing to help improve germination. When soaking the seeds, use warm (but not hot) water and only for 4 to 6 hours.

After the plants are about two inches tall, thin them to a spacing of one plant every eighteen inches, removing the weakest looking plants in the process.

Harvest the pods when young and tender. Older pods become tough and fibrous. If the pods are allowed to mature, the plant will cease production. Okra thrives in warm weather and is used in soups, stews, boiled or fried.
