Plants grow to 7 feet tall
Approx. 100 seeds per pack
Also known as old fashioned okra, this variety gets its name from the cross-sections of pods that look like the Star of David. These tall 7' plants have purple coloration on leaves and thick pods that are best picked at about 3" long. Like many okra varieties, this plant bears beautiful flowers and foliage that could warrant a place in the ornamental border.
Direct seed: 2” apart at 1/2” depth in full sun. Thin to 10-12" apart. Okra does best when it receives regular water but is tolerant to heat and drought. Not tolerant to the cold. Keep well picked for higher yields.
Transplant: Sow in 2" pots or plug trays, 3 seeds per pot/cell, 1/4" deep. Start 4-5 weeks ahead of transplanting out after frost danger when soil is warm. Keep soil mix temp. 80-90°F (27-32°C) for fast germination. Thin to one plant per pot/cell. Transplant 12-18" apart in rows 3' apart. Do not disturb roots. Use row cover for added warmth to plants and soil.
