Garden Okra

Jambalaya

Compact Jambalaya okra plants are both fast growing and early maturing. Once the weather heats up, Jambalaya really takes off, first bearing ornamental, hollyhock-like flowers soon followed by high yields of uniform, crunchy green pods. Pick when young and tender so you can enjoy okra lightly battered and fried or stirfried, stewed or pickled. Jambalaya okra is a hot weather crop that has become a tasty favorite far beyond its original home in the South.

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Start indoors 3-4 weeks before last frost date. Soak seeds overnight in tepid water to soften hard seed coats. Plant 1/2 inch deep in individual 3-4 inch pots of seed starting mix. Keep warm and provide a strong light source. Transplant 1 foot apart in rich garden soil in full sun only after temperatures reach 55-60° F (13-16° C) both day and night.

TO PLANT DIRECTLY OUTDOORS

When spring weather reaches 55-60° F (13-16° C) both day and night, plant in well-amended, rich garden soil in full sun. Sow seeds 1/2 inch deep and 6 inches apart. When seedlings are 3-4 inches tall, thin to one foot apart so plants have room to grow and mature.

GROWING NOTES

Okra seeds do not store well and germinate at about 50%, so start with fresh seeds each season. Plants need consistent hot weather, but once established, they really crank out pods! Provide consistent moisture; mulching is a good strategy. Feed plants monthly. Keep pods picked for most production.
