A favorite from Israel! Star of David Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) yields short, very stout pods that are thicker than most varieties. Productive plants grow 5- to 8-ft tall and have large hibiscus-like flowers. A real beauty in the garden! (70 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.
