MENUMENU

Okra Blondy

£0.99

A smaller sized compact spineless variety producing large harvests of 8cm ribbed pods of an attractive creamy-lime in colour.. Much more cold tolerant than many Okra varieties the plants mature much faster than others in as little as 8 weeks from sowing allowing a much broader sowing season. In the UK best under glass, but worth a try in a well sheltered, sunny, warm spot outdoors.
