Pods and stems of this tender and delicious okra variety are a beautiful, deep-red. (30-75 days)
Soaking seeds for 24 hours before planting greatly improves germination. Direct-seed when soil is warm (2 weeks after last frost date). May also start in containers 2 to 4 weeks before setting out.
Plants thrive in rich, moist soil in full sun, but often do surprisingly well in dry or poor soils. Harvest daily during hot weather — pods grow quickly past the stage of prime eating.
