Emerald okra seeds produce spineless pods that stay tender even when large! Sturdy plants grow 150-240cm tall and dark-green velvet pods are 15-20cm long at harvest. This variety retains its color when cooked or canned! Cut cross sections are perfectly round and resemble little wagon wheels. 55 days to maturity. Average water needs.
Okra is a warm-weather crop, needing both the soil and the nights to be warm before beginning its vigorous growth. Plants begin bearing when about a 3-4 feet tall and will continue until frost if kept picked. For best flavor, harvest the fruit at 10-15cm long.
