Product Description - Organic Red Okra (लाल भिंडी के बीज) Seeds - Open Pollinated

Red okra is torpedo-shaped and grows to a length of two to five inches. The fresh flavor is midway between eggplant and asparagus, with a distinctive flavor and texture. However, when cooked, the crimson tint fades, and the pods turn green. Raw red okra offers a splash of color.

Okra is a tropical plant that is grown as a vegetable as an annual. Because of their sticky mucilage, the seed pods are especially useful for thickening stews. Okra plants are exceptionally drought and heat tolerant, and it is a popular vegetable in many places where growing circumstances are poor. Fresh okra is high in vitamins and antioxidants, and it grows best in healthy, well-drained soil that receives full sunlight. It can be grown from seed in your terrace garden, but it demands a lot of room. In the summer, red okra is accessible.

Benefits/Uses of Red Okra

Vitamin C, vitamin A, folacin, and other B vitamins and magnesium, potassium, and calcium are all red okra. It contains no fat, no saturated fat, no cholesterol, and is minimal in calories. Okra is a good source of dietary fiber, including more than five grams every three and a half ounce serving. This vegetable provides an additional source of folate, which is excellent for pregnant women.

Planting and Care for Red Okra

Sowing Red Okra Seeds

  • Pick a grow bag of your choice that features adequate drainage holes on the bottom.
  • Fill the grow bag halfway with the appropriate potting layers and growing medium.
  • Two seeds should be sown in the center of a pot.
  • Plant two seeds per location in raised beds with a spacing of 2 × 2 ft.
  • With your fingers, gently press the seeds into the soil medium and completely cover them with the surrounding dirt.
  • Immediately moisten the sowed seedbed with a light shower from a watering can.
  • Okra should be planted about 1/2 to 1 inch thick and 12 to 18 inches apart on healthy, well-drained soil in full sunshine. You can soak the seeds in tepid water overnight to aid with germination.

Growing Red Okra

  • Within the first 6-8 days, seeds will germinate, and tiny shoots will appear.
  • In the second week of germination, the first two leaves will appear. These are cotyledons or fake leaves.
  • At the end of the second week, the first leaves will emerge above the cotyledons.
  • From the second week on, seedlings will begin to develop into little plants.
  •  After the second week, just one healthy seedling should be left in one location; weak, small, and trailing seedlings should be removed with a pair of scissors.

Harvesting Red Okra  

The red okra plant will begin flowering in the second month; raw okra pods can be collected within 40-50 days of seed sowing, and the harvesting season will last for the next three months. Pods can be cut from the plant using a sharp knife or snapped from the plant.

Precautions while growing Red Okra  

  • Eliminate weeds while the plants are still young and then densely mulch to prevent the growth of other weeds.
  • Apply a 4- to 8-inch layer of mulch. Additionally, you should apply a side dressing of old manure or rich compost to the plants.
  • Additionally, you could use a balanced liquid fertilizer every month.
  • When the seedlings reach about 3 inches in height, thin them to a spacing of 10 to 18 inches.
  • Maintain adequate irrigation throughout the summer months; 1 inch of water per week is optimal, but more is necessary if you live in a hot, arid environment.
  • Remove the lowest leaves following the initial harvest to aid in output.
  • Red okra does not appreciate its roots being disturbed.

Common Problems affecting Red Okra Plants and Solutions

Always look for any early signs of any insect/fungal/ any other problems. Use appropriate medicines as soon as any symptoms of such are spotted.

Silver leaf whitefly, Heliothis, stink bugs, rough bollworm, looper caterpillars, and green vegetable bugs are just a few of the numerous insect pests that can target Red Okra plants. Aphids and mites are also known to attack Red Okra crops. Aphids may be coated with soap spray or washed away with a constant stream of water. Stink bugs are more challenging to eradicate. These can be hand-selected and disposed of. It is recommended that biopesticides be used. Without picking the pods/fruits on time and allowing them to mature on the vine, flowering and subsequent development would be reduced. Branch thinning or branch removal may be required to keep the plant from growing too densely.

Leaf spot is a fungal infection—resistant plant variety. Crop rotation is essential. Maintain a garden devoid of plant waste. Every 7 to 10 days, apply Trichoderma Viride Bio Fertilizer or Pseudomonas Fluorescens Bio Fertilizer. Soil should be well-drained—alternate crops.

Inadequate light, water stress, and an excess of nitrogen all contribute to pod formation inhibition. Plant in full sun, in compost-rich soil, and maintain an even moisture level in the soil.

Anthracnose is a fungal infection that thrives in conditions of high humidity and rainfall. Leaves can succumb to the elements and fall. The plant can wither. Plants that are contaminated should be removed and discarded. Avoid gardening in the rain, as this can result in the spread of spores. Soil should be well-drained. Every 7 to 10 days, spray Trichoderma Viride Bio Fertilizer or Pseudomonas Fluorescens Bio Fertilizer.
