Okra


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".

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
