Okra - Clemson Spineless
Originally, Okra comes from northern Africa, where it still grows wild. This unusual member of the hibiscus family has an important part in African, Mediterranean and Oriental cuisine.
It is a culinary tradition in the southern states of America, where it is used both as a side dish and in a variety of recipes including gumbos and stews. It is also a popular vegetable in the south of India, where it is mostly used in dry curries.
Okra 'Clemson Spineless' is a spineless variety that was developed by the horticultural research department of Clemson University in South Carolina. It was introduced in 1939 and immediately won the AAS award in that same year.
Producing compact, strong plants with prolific bright green pods, the vigorous plants produce exceptional yields of tender, less fibrous pods over a longer season. Today Clemson Spineless is still the market standard.
