Okra Beck’s Big Buck Horn


SKU: N/A Categories: , ,


Abelmoschus esculentus
OP Heirloom
It is one of the most sought after cultivars, out of all species we grew this was the largest one- over 2m tall. The fruits are very big and filled, the size of a stuffing pepper. It can be used like that, or it can be dried. The fruits are produced until the first frosts. 57 days!
Okra is a shrubby, branched plant. The flowers last only one day, as does the hibiscus flower, which belongs to the same Malvaceae family. The fruit is used in all possible ways: Fresh, processed, dried, frozen – it can stand in the freezer for 1 year without losing its properties.
It is a thermophilic plant and is sown in April and May. Young fruits are used in okra. The plant requires a lot of water and must be watered regularly.
