How to Grow Red Okra!
# 1 | 24 hours before you plan on planting your okra seeds, soak them overnight. This will encourage a faster germination!

# 3 | Thin to the strongest plant by cutting off the rest. When the air temperature reaches a consistent 60 degrees F, plant the seedlings in full sun 12-15" apart in rows 3' apart.
