Chock-full of good flavor! Hill Country Red Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) is a beautiful heirloom from South Texas. Prolific plants grow 4- to 6-ft tall and yield plump, pale green and burgundy colored pods. Tender and delicious — they’re perfect for pickling! (60-70 days)

Each packet contains approximately 100 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.
