Alelmoshus esculentus  Approximately 20 seeds per pack. Germination ~ 88% November 2021

Alabama produces an abundance of short, fat, red-and-green pods that grow to 4 inches. Like all okras, they are best harvested as soon as they reach their maximum size (or just prior to that). 'Alabama Red' grows on 5-7 ft. tall plants with stems and leaf veins also red. Our friends at Southern Exposure Seed Exchange say it's delicious fried, great in gumbo, and adds color and unique flavor added to salads when young. (If you haven't had raw okra, fresh off the plant, you don't know what you're missing!)
