Okra

Heirloom okra is one of the staples of Southern cooking, and is delicious when cooked properly – breaded and fried, grilled or curried. Originating in the Nile Valley, it loves the heat, needing consistently warm weather for germination and successful growth.

Okra has surprisingly beautiful flowers, one of the most exquisite blossoms of all the garden vegetables.
