Grow Guide Conditions:

Okra is a tropical plant, growing optimally in hot, humid climates. Well drained, fertile sandy or silt-loam soil with a pH between 6.0–7.0 is best. Assure adequate soil moisture throughout the growing season.

Grow Guide Seed:

Direct seed or transplant into the garden once soil temperatures reach 70°F, more optimally 75–90°F. Enhance germination by soaking seed overnight in water prior to planting. To direct seed, plant one seed every 6 inches, 1 inch deep, allowing 18-36 inches between rows. Thin to one plant every 12-18 inches. To start seeds indoors, fill 2-4 inch pots with a sterile seed starting mix. Plant 2 seeds per pot, ¾ inch deep. Use a seedling heat mat to warm the soil. Transplant 4–5 week old seedlings outside 3-4 weeks after the last frost, 12-18 inches apart, allowing 18-36 inches between rows.

Grow Guide Pests:

Follow a 3 year crop rotation cycle. Avoid planting into cool soils. Remove stink bugs that cause wart-like growths on pods.

Grow Guide Harvest:

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. Store at 45–50°F. Okra pods may be damaged if chilled below 45°F.
