Hi

I am thinking of going back to grow ladies fingers. Done it many years ago on the ground but the veg were too big and hard....didnt think they could be eaten.
Few days ago saw some potted ones at Goodwood with ladies fingers hanging down the plant but looked big and hard to touch...so how does one pick the ones good for cooking and eating.? If one wait till it grows to a decent size then it may turn hard.
Also could they be grown from seeds of fresh ladies fingers? I am hoping to grow from pots this time.

Hi there,

i'm juz sharng my experience here and there are more gurus out there

mine are all grown fm seeds in pots.

example : :hysterical:/> :hysterical:/>

We normally pluck the okras juz before it turns hard. Sometimes, pluck before it change to a dark green colour. If i has gone beyond that, you an use the seeds in the okra.

:rolleyes:/>

At what length to harvest depends on the variety you are growing. Bend the tip of the okra. If it snaps off easily, the okra is still good for cooking & eating. If the tip is already hard, it's too "old" & very fibrous.

White seeds from fresh okra are not viable. You need to use the black seeds from the okra that has totally dried up & turned brown on the plant.
