Start From Seed: Detailed instructions for direct seeding, or starting seeds indoors and transplanting.
Direct seed or transplant into production area once soil temperatures reach 70°F, more optimally 75–90°F. Enhance germination by soaking seed overnight in water prior to planting. Use 4–5 week seedlings for transplant. Seeding depths, spacing, and planting rates can be found in our Planting Guide.
Growing Conditions: Growing seasons, soil types, water and fertility requirements.
Okra is a tropical plant, growing optimally in hot climates. Well drained, fertile sandy or silt-loam soil (pH 6–7) is best. Assure adequate soil moisture throughout the growing period.
Pest Prevention: Organic solutions to common problems.
Employ regular crop rotations. Avoid planting into cool soils. Remove stink bugs that cause wart-like growths on pods.
Harvest: Is it ready yet? When to harvest and how to store your garden produce.
Pick fruits when young and tender (about 5–6 days after flowering). Handle with care as fruits are easily injured. Daily harvests increase overall yields. Market fresh or store at 45–50°F, high humidity. Do not chill below 45°F.
