Dark Light

Okra-Clemson (50g/100g)

Okra is a warm-season broadleaf vegetable in the cotton family that is extremely deep-rooted and has excellent heat and drought tolerance. Okra’s massive taproot is an excellent compaction breaker. This fast-growing plant provides a large canopy, long-lasting residue, and winter snow catch. Livestock will graze okra, as the pods are high in vitamin A, C, and K, along with other minerals and vitamins that help strengthen the immune system and bones.



This variety is one of the most popular, prolific and reliable strains available. Straight, 6-7 inch, green pods are slightly ridged and definitely spineless. Plants 3 ft. high, produce an abundance of dark green, 6-inch slightly tapered and ribbed, straight, pointed pods without spines. Best when 2 1/2-3 in. long. Fine quality and prolific. The first harvest around 60 days after seed is sown.

How To Grow Okra

  • Transplanting: Transplant when there are at least two sets of true leaves.
  • Spacing: Space seedlings 38*45cm
  • Soil: Fertilize prior to planting, and again when plants are 12 inches tall, and finally when the plants begin to flower.
  • Temperature: Grows best when temperatures remain above 50°c
  • Additional Care: Okra is very tolerant of clay soils and heat.

Appearance And Use

This exotic, tropical-looking, plant grows 3-6 feet tall and produces 2-3 inch, pale yellow with a maroon centre, Hibiscus-like flowers. Narrow, ribbed, edible pods with pointed ends follow the flowers. The pods become tough as they increase in size, so harvest them when they are 3 inches long or less. Pick them daily to keep the plants in production.

How To Sow

Sow under cover 4-6 weeks directly outside in warmer areas from late spring.

Sow 1/2-3/4 inch deep, 2 to a pot, and thin to strongest seedling, or thinly in rows, thinning to 18-24 inches between plants.

Plant out after the last frost.

Sunny location required in order to maximize harvest.

Harvest pods when they are young and tender, 2 1/2 – 3 inches long.
