Okra: Clemson Spineless
Clemson Spineless Okra is the most popular okra found in home gardens and markets and an All-American Selections winner for a reason! This high-yielding plant produces dark green, grooved pods that stay spineless and non-woody. Clemson Spineless grows to 4′ tall, and pods are most tender and flavorful when harvested at 3-4″. Okra is excellent for pickling or cutting up and using as fresh gumbo or stews. 70 days.
Approximate seed count- 50 seeds
Okra is a warm-weather plant, soaking up full sunshine and thriving in ordinary, well-drained garden soil. Start seeds indoors (4 to 6 weeks before the soil warms) everywhere but the hottest climates, soaking the seeds for 24 hours before planting them. Transplant when night temperatures are consistently above 50 degrees F, spacing the plants 10 to 12 inches apart. Fertilize the soil before planting and again when the plants begin to flower. If you want to pick the fruit for eating, they are ready to harvest when just 3 inches long, or they may be left to mature to their full size if you want to save seed.
