One thing I learned is don't let the okra grow too big because they turned fibrous and tough to eat.
Cool. I never knew there was such a thing as red okra. I just now looked up images of those plants, they sure are pretty. I'd like to try growing that red okra as an ornamental but I don't think it will grow well here. I once tried growing a green okra plant that I got at a local nursery and it grew well for the next 3 weeks in the pot outdoors and then when I transplanted it into the ground it immediately went into shock and just keeled over and shriveled up then died.
