General Plant Information: Okra, Quimbombo (Abelmoschus esculentus L.a), a vegetable that is used widely in stews and soups, can also be enjoyed baked, grilled, pickled or steamed. Clemson Spineless is a dark-green straight variety that has pointed pods and is without spines. Okra is a warm-season vegetable that thrives in the heat of summer. Okra belongs to the mallow family, along with cotton, hibiscus and hollyhock. Okra thrives in well-drained, organic soil with a pH between 6.5 and 7.5. Because okra seeds do not transplant well, it is best to sow them directly into the garden two weeks after the last frost or when soil temperatures reach 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Information about our seeds: Most of our seeds come from traditional crops that farmers have cultivated for many years on natural managed lands. These seeds are not GMO, do not chemically or biologically treated and are processed with minimal mechanization. Seeds are hand selected, prepared and packaged.
Guarantee: Seeds are living products that depend on many factors such as proper planting time and technique, depth of sowing, soil, proper germination environment, fertility, disease control, insect control, and reasonable weather for direct sown seeds. If any of these factors are not right, it may cause the seed to not perform and because most, if not all, of these are out of our control, most of the success of these seeds is in the hands of the grower. If they have been cared for properly and still fail to grow, we will replace the seed, one time.
