Okra ‘French Quarter Pink’

French Quarter is a brand new dwarf okra with colorful pink and red fruits, compact habit, and attractive dark red foliage. This compact version of Okra is perfect for small gardens and containers. Harvest frequently since the smaller fingers have the best flavor. Okra is a very versatile vegetable whose texture varies depending on how it’s cooked. If you like it gooey and glutinous, add it to an African-style stew or if you prefer it in whole chunks, try it in a classic American gumbo. Okra is widely used in Indian, Middle Eastern, Caribbean and southern US cookery. Please call the store (740) 763-2873 for availability, prices, and sizes.
