Greeny Splendor Okra

Greeny Splendor Okra


Abelmochus esculentus  

A productive heat tolerant and drought tolerant perennial with round pods that can be harvested up to 5” in length. Will send out side branches and main leader can be pruned when too tall to encourage side shoot growth. Requires a pH close to 6. Seeds can be soaked overnight before  sewing or direct seeded about 3/8 to 1/2” deep. Space about 2 feet between seeds. First harvest is usually at around 2 months. Harvest frequently for high quality pods 3-4 inches in length. Okra is susceptible to root knot nematodes, and the use of manures and compost can help to suppress them.
