French Quarter Pink Hybrid Okra

Our top pick for containers, small gardens and the edible landscape. Attractive, compact plants grow just 24-30 inches tall and produce 3-5, pink-red pods at a time—and, when picked regularly, they just keep producing. For optimum flavor and texture, pick pods when they are 3-4 inches long. Pods are excellent roasted, grilled, tossed in stir-fries, and in gumbos and jambalaya. French Quarter Pink Okra Hybrid can also double as an ornamental. It has an open, compact habit with handsome foliage and creamy yellow flowers. For best results, sow okra seeds in a sunny location after the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. 50-55 DAYS.
