There are many things that have impressed me about this plant.
I don’t know about you, but I didn’t like okra as food. Maybe because every okra I’ve tasted has been store-bought, frozen, of almost unknown origin and age.
Things changed when I grew okra in the garden for the first time and used it to make my first okra dish.
I have been a fanatic ever since.
There are many things that have impressed me about this plant
- It is very easy to grow and start from seed.
- It has an impressive flower.
- The fruits, the okra, grow very quickly. From flower to harvest, it takes only 5 to 6 days.
- Okra keeps the grower on his toes. He needs to harvest every second day.
- If you prepare and cook them properly, they make amazing dishes!!!
- You can keep them in the freezer for several months and eat them in winter too.
Sow at least 30 to 50 okra plants to get enough production.
The recipe I usually follow to cook okra is the one by Argyro Barbarigou: Argyro’s Okra Latheres. It has never disappointed me.
But there is another suggestion from Zoe Vranikou. Bamias Fried in Porridge.
