Growth habit of Maha F1 Okra Seeds

  • In some ways, growing okra from seeds is easy because it tolerates poor soils, little moisture, and a range of soil pH readings.
  • That tolerance extends to the kitchen, where it is a delicious addition to soups and can be fried or stewed.
  • However, Maha F1 Okra is a demanding plant when it comes to heat and sunshine, It becomes vulnerable to pests and diseases if it’s too cool or shady, even for a short time.

Note: that okra won’t bear those wonderful seed pods without abundant heat and sunlight.

How to plant Maha F1 Okra Seeds

  • Give okra plenty of room so they can grow properly.
  • The plants often grow four to six feet tall and can spread just as far.
  • Strategically plant the seeds so that the plants will be spaced 12 to 15 inches apart in rows at least three feet apart.
  • Raw okra seeds can be difficult to germinate, so soak the seed overnight to encourage germination.
  • You can encourage faster germination by covering rows with black plastic. This also encourages faster early growth.

How to care for your Maha F1 Okra Seeds

  • Despite its reputation as a plant that will survive dry conditions, it still needs adequate watering so that it can produce succulent and more pods.

Note: that Okra seeds that grow on little water will produce tough pods and may be prone to afternoon wilt.

  • Foliar fertilizer sprays are particularly effective and Liquid seaweed sprays can be applied two or three times during the season.
  • Okra is also sensitive to weeds so keep your field well-weeded, especially when plants are young.
