Blondy is an AAS winning dwarf Okra great for short seasons. Named after its plentiful creamy light green spineless pods, this plant is a dwarf, growing 3-4’ tall, shorter than the average okra plant. Pods are best when harvested at 3 inches, but grow to be 6-7” when fully mature.
Okra is a warm-weather plant, soaking up full sunshine and thriving in any ordinary, well-drained garden soil. Start seeds indoors (4 to 6 weeks before the soil warms) everywhere but the hottest climates, soaking the seeds for 24 hours before planting them. Transplant when night temperatures are consistently above 50 degrees F, spacing the plants 10 to 12 inches apart. Fertilize the soil before planting and again when the plants begin to flower. If you want to pick the fruit for eating, they are ready to harvest when just 3 inches long, or maybe left to mature to their full size.
