Burgundy Okra
FREE SHIPPING in the contiguous 48 United States

This edible ornamental is productive! Burgundy Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) yields plump, 6- to 8-inch pods that are delicious deep-fried or in soups and stews. Stunning plants, with large yellow flowers and purple stems, grow to 5-feet and really stand out in the garden. (30-75 days)

Each packet contains approximately 30-75 seeds.

Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Start indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost of spring. Transplant outside after the soil has warmed to 65˚ to 75˚F. Sow one inch deep and space 12-18 inches apart in rows 3-4 feet apart. Plants prefer full sun and moist soil with plenty of organic matter.

Harvest daily with a sharp knife during hot weather — pods taste best when young and grow quickly past the stage of prime eating. Wear gloves and long sleeves for protection from spines.
