The Okra Yeleen variety is a short okra variety (Caillei species). It has a high level of mucilage, its regularity of production, and its high yield.
Okra is a warm-season vegetable that grows well in most Texas soils. A fair source of vitamin A, it can be eaten in many ways, including boiled, fried, and cooked in soups, gumbos, and casseroles.
Site selection for Okra Yeleen
For good yields, okra must grow in full sunlight in fertile, well-drained soil.
Soil preparation for Okra Yeleen
Work the soil only when it is dry enough not to stick to garden tools. Spade or turn the soil as deeply as possible. Okra will grow best in soil that has been worked 8 to 10 inches deep. Remove all rocks and trash from the soil, and then rake it soil smooth.
For the best yields, plant okra in the spring 2 to 3 weeks after all danger of frost has passed. For a good fall crop, plant at least 3 months before the first fall frost. Plant the okra seeds about 1 inch deep and 2 inches apart in the row (Fig. 1). Space the rows at least 3 feet apart. When the okra is up and growing, thin out the plants to about 1 foot apart.
