Okra (Premier Seed | 20g Sachet)


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.
