Okra Seeds - French Quarter

  • Catalogue Code 1020-2743
  • Pack Contents: 5x Okra Seeds
  • First and only true patio-type okra
  • Top ingredient for award-winning bahjis
  • Lovely blooms followed by edible okras’

Grow this new and exciting patio variety of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus). Other varieties requires an indoor environment but not French Quarter which has been bred to withstand a south-facing and sheltered position outdoors. Every plant produces big attractive blooms that give way to attractive pinky-red seed pods. Pleasing to the eye and big in flavour.

How to sow:

Soak seeds in warm water for a couple of hours before sowing to soften the seed coat and encourage quick germination.

Sow seeds 1cm (1/2 in) deep in clean trays or individual 9cm pots filled with moist, firm compost indoors from mid-winter to April. Keep them in an ambient temperature of 16°C (61°F) until transplanting in bigger pots. Transplant when the seedlings are around 10-15cm (4-6in) high. Keep soil moist at all times.

Features

  • Good in containers and pots
  • Will flower well in full sun

The seeds were rather expensive but this second pack of seeds have all germinated! 100% viability which is great. I have planted all of them in my green house and only time will tell how they thrive. Clean packing and prompt delivery.

5 seeds in the packet but one seed produced a stunted deformed plant. The others are all healthy.

Only 5 seeds in packet, very costly. However all have germinated and growing nicely. Fingers crossed I get a good crop of okra from them
