     Let’s talk about Dwarf Long Green Pod Okra. This variety of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) is a tender, heat-loving annual that produces delicious pods. Here are some planting instructions and tips for growing Dwarf Long Green Pod Okra:




    Direct Sowing in Hot Climates

    In warm regions, you can directly sow the heirloom okra seeds in the ground.


    Starting Indoors

    Alternatively, start the seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost to get an early crop. Plant the seeds about ½ inch deep in 3-inch pots.


    Soaking Seeds

    Soaking the okra seeds in warm water for 2 hours before planting will speed up germination.


    Spacing and Growing

    Once the plants reach about two inches in height, thin them to a spacing of one plant every eighteen inches. Remove the weakest-looking plants during thinning. Dwarf Long Green Pod Okra grows to a height of 2 to 3 feet. The plants yield heavily and produce dark green pods with shallow ridges.



    Harvest the pods when they are young and tender. Older pods become tough and fibrous. Cut the fruit from the plant using shears or a knife (to prevent damage to the plant) when the tender pods are 2-4 inches long. Be aware that okra plants have short hairs that can be irritating to the skin. If irritation occurs, wear long sleeves and gloves during harvesting.


    Remember to provide your okra plants with full sun and maintain consistent care to encourage continuous fruit set. Enjoy growing this tasty and versatile vegetable!
