Growing Instructions:
Sow okra in full sun and average, well worked soil after the danger of frost. Grow in a different location each year for optimal yearly growth. Prepare the bed by turning the soil to a depth of 8". Plant 3-4 seeds every 12" in rows 36" apart. Cover with 1" of fine soil. Thin to strongest seedling per group when the seedlings are 1-2" high. Keep weeds under control in growing area as weeds compete for water, space and nutrients. Keep well watered during dry periods. They will need 1-1.5" of water per week. When harvesting, pick young okra pods that are 2-3" long and harvest them every other day to encourage continuous production. Cut the pods from the stem just above the cap.
