The Okra Sahari F1 hybrid variety is like Indiana or Pusa Sawami. It is a sought-after variety because of its earliness, its yielding, its wide adaptation, and its quality for export.
Okra is a vegetable that keeps on giving all summer long. When you harvest a pod, another grows in its place. It’s related to the hibiscus plant and produces similarly beautiful flowers. Okra grows best in hot climates, but even if you live in a Northern region, you can grow okra by starting it from seed indoors and transplanting it when the weather warms up.
