Okra-Jambalaya

Abelmoschus esculentus

It is a traditional crop that is mostly produced in hot southern places. This variety can flourish in climates with much shorter growing seasons. With succulent, 5-ridged, meaty pods on beautiful, lightweight trees, Jambalaya okra embodies the spirited taste of Creole cuisine. They contain vitamin K1, A, C.

Don't just let the 1st one grow as big as you can, it could shut the plant down.  They do have some susceptibility to nematodes. If you would like to grow okra from the Spring through the summer and into fall, it is better to do 2 successive plantings in 2 different locations. One- from the Spring into summer, and the other from summer and into fall.
