Okra is a warm season vegetable native to North East Africa and Central America that is primarily used in soups, stir fries, and salads. Start indoors 4-5 weeks before last frost or outdoors when soil is warm. Germinates in 7-14 days at 70-80F/21-26C. Start in biodegradable pots as Okra does not transplant well. Sow outdoors in Mid-June. Space seeds 3cm/1" apart and 1cm/1/2" deep. Thin out to 30cm/12".
