Description

GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Okra (Abelmoschus Esculentus), known in many English-speaking countries as ladies' fingers or ochro, is a flowering plant in the mallow family.
  • It is native to Africa and related to hibiscus, arrived in North America in the 1600s.
  • These edible green seed pods quickly became popular in the Deep South as both a side dish and a thickening for gumbo and stews.
  • As more gardeners discover that they really like okra, the range of this warm-natured hibiscus cousin is steadily edging northward.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Okra is tolerant of a wide range of soil pH, but prefers soil with a pH between 6.0 and 6.8.
  • If the soil pH is below 5.8, it should be limed to increase the pH to 6.0 or more.
  • Soils at or below 5.8 can result in okra with poorly developed pods.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Use fertilizer with NPK such as 10-10-10 or 15-5-10.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Okra needs full sun.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Keep the plants well-watered throughout the hot weather
  • 1 inch of water per week is ideal, but use more if you are in a hot, arid region.
