Lady Finger Red (Bhindi) Seeds
UNTREATED AND OPEN POLLINATED SEEDS
Red okra (or bhindi/bhendi) can be a visual delight to grow in your kitchen garden. It has green leaves with burgundy stems, leaf ribs, and branches. It is great for when you want a little variety in your garden and provides a welcome change from the more common green bhendi/okra varieties.
50-65 days to maturity. Bring on the heat! The hotter the better! Full sun produces healthy plants while in cooler climates (below 20 degrees) the results are not as predictable. It can also be grown in containers, but the minimum size for these should be 12"-14" (depth and width).
The burgundy-colored 6" - 8" long pods can be eaten raw when tender (as they are not very mucilaginous), but turn green when cooked.
