Okra is a popular health food due to its high fiber, vitamin C, and folate content. Okra is also high in antioxidants and is a good source of calcium and potassium. Both the taste and flavor of my organic home grown okra are excellent!

How to Grow Okra



If yours get as big as mine do, the plant makes an excellent screen as well. Mine often grow as much as 12' in a season and have stems the size of sapling trees--sometimes as much as 2" in diameter! Don't forget that the okra flowers are also extremely attractive, and you can eat the leaves too. An all-around great plant.

The flower of the okra is gorgeous. It's not only beautiful, but it can also be cooked too.
This my beautiful okra flower right in my 100% Organic Garden.
