Abelmoschus esculentus


Also known as “White Creole,” this heirloom okra from the early 1900s is the white version of Green Velvet and Red Velvet.  Mentioned as early as 1918, it grows well in many areas where other okras fail to thrive – in central France for example. The robust plants reach a height of 36 to 48 inches (depending on soil) yielding 5 to 6 inch pods for harvest.  The pods will attain a length of 12 inches but are not suitable for eating.  However, seed production is enormous thus this is one of the okras used for making roasted okra seed “coffee.” Plant 2 feet apart for best pod production. 


~30 seeds per packet.
