Okra Loves Heat!!!!

I am growing 3 different varieties of okra in my hoop house and they are thriving in 100° heat!!! The varieties are Eagle Pass, Jing Orange and Roberie. The production is impressive. By leaving the side vents open I get adequate insect pollination.

Our favorite way to enjoy our okra is by pickling. I prefer my pickled okra with dill, garlic, pickling spice, hot pepper, red pepper flakes, pickling salt and apple cider vinegar.
