Emerald Okra (4g)
Emerald okra produces spineless pods that stay tender even when large! Sturdy plants grow 5-8' tall and dark-green velvet pods are 6-8" long at harvest. This variety retains its color when cooked or canned! Cut cross sections are perfectly round and resemble little wagon wheels. Average: 55 days.

Detailed planting instructions:
Plant the seeds in full sun and average, well-worked soil once the last frost has passed. To prevent pest and disease problems, rotate the seed placement every year. Before planting, turn the soil under to a depth of 8". Sow 3 to 4 seeds ΒΌ" deep. Thin the seedlings to 12 to 18" apart and keep them well-watered during dry seasons.

Harvesting:
Harvest okra pods by picking them from the plant every other day to promote continuous production. The pods are ready for harvest once they are 2 to 3" long. Slice the pods from the stem just above the cap.

Saving Seeds:
Once pods form on your okra plant harvest a few for drying. Keep the pods in a dry location and let nature gradually do the work. When the pod is dry and crisp break it open. You should see several internal chambers where the seeds are located. Remove the seeds onto a plate or paper towel. Save the seeds in a coin envelope, but plastic baggies, jars, and containers can work too. Write the name of the Okra variety and the date on the outside of the envelope so you can keep track of the seeds. Old seeds will lose viability over of time.

Easy to grow and Excellent taste July 5, 2017
Reviewer: MiniFarmLife from South Georgia  
I started a little late .. I planted 2 rows of 70 seeds about 6 inches apart on May 8th - 58 in one row and 64 in the other row came up .I generously watered. Within a couple of weeks , they were 1-2 feet tall. My okra blooms emerged on June 30 @approx 53 days and they were 3-5 feet tall by then (deer helped themselves to a few leaves )-- 4 days later, on July 4th, I enjoyed my first small pan of okra. I picked again today and got a little more than yesterday. Even the longer 4-5 inch pods that I missed yesterday are tender.Delicious. Very happy with these seeds. Plan to harvest some of the seeds for next year...

Heirloom Seeds September 1, 2016
Reviewer: Jo Hunding from Lagrange, GA United States  
I appreciate the packets that the seeds arrived in. It is of a heavy grade material that seals the seeds from moisture and light. I really like how I can re-seal the packet for future use.
