Perfect grilled, fried or pickled! Star of David Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) is native to Israel and has a unique, almost sweet flavor. Pale green pods are very plump and should be picked around 3-inches long for best texture and flavor. Beautiful 5- to 7-ft tall plants have purple tinged leaves and large hibiscus-like flowers. (60-75 days) CERTIFIED ORGANIC

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.
