A real crowd pleaser! Emerald Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) was originally introduced by Campbell’s Soup in the 1950s. Smooth, slender pods are of top quality and remain tender up to 7-inches long! Dark green plants, with attractive pale-yellow flowers, grow tall and produce early. (58 days)
Each packet contains approximately 30 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.
