How To plant Kirikou F1 Hybrid Okra Seeds

  • Avoid overwatering: In fact, okra performs best when the soil can dry out some between watering. Overwatering okra can cause root rot and disfigured plants. Water Okra with about 1/2-inch of water per week, depending on rainfall amounts in your local area.
  • Garden Hint: Soak seed in warm water overnight to speed germination.
  • Plant in soil with a near-neutral pH between 6.5 and 7.0, although it will do fine in a pH as high as 7.6. Plants benefit from a generous amount of compost or other rich organic matter, which should be thoroughly mixed into the soil before planting.
  • Soil requirements: Okra needs well-drained, nutrient-rich soil. Amend soil with 3 to 5 inches of compost or other organic matter prior to planting. You can get Calcium Nitrate Fertilizer to improve your soil and get maximum Okra yield.
  • Water requirements: Keep soil consistently moist as plants establish. Established plants benefit from 1 inch of water per week but withstand mild drought. Mulch soil to reduce water evaporation but wait until the soil has warmed before covering.
  • Harvesting: Pick pods when they’re 2 to 4 inches long. They grow fast, so harvest frequently. Use a knife or scissors to snip pod stems, leaving a bit of stem attached to each pod. Pods ripen first at the bottom of plants. Wear gloves and long sleeves until you know if you react to the spines on plants. Pods that are tough to cut are too tough to eat.
  • Storage: Refrigerate okra pods with stems attached in a paper bag or wrap them in a dry paper towel and tuck them into a loosely closed or perforated plastic bag. Use within 2 to 3 days.

How To Obtain An Optimal Yield From Your Clemson Spineless Okra

  • One trick is to plant okra in extra-wide rows and with spread-out spacing to yield more pods per plant and harvest early enough.
  • Make sure your Okra plant does not lack water and is not overwatered.
