Description

Stunning deep red stems and red-veined green leaves, and deep-red pods make this variety one of the best plants to choose for edible landscaping. Yellow, hibiscus-like blooms are loved by bees and produce 2 – 5 inches long torpedo shaped, delicious and tender pods. When cooked, however, the red colour disappears and the pods turn green. Raw red okra adds a colourful touch.
Hint: Sow direct in garden or containers. Cover with Horti Seed & Potting Mixture. Keep moist. In Sun or semi-shade position.
