Edible Musk Okra, Edible Hibiscus BURGUNDY 2g (Hibiscus esculentus)
Okra, also known as edible hibiscus, is an interesting annual plant with upright stems that can grow up to 1m in length. It can be used as a vegetable, ornamental plant, and herb. In the summer, yellow flowers with red spots on the petals grow from the leaf axils. The fruit is a finger-shaped capsule that can grow up to 30cm in length and is burgundy in color. The fruit should be harvested when it is still immature and soft, as it is then a delicate vegetable. It can be boiled, fried, stewed, dried, pickled, and preserved. When cooked, it becomes sticky, making it recommended as an ingredient in dishes for people with stomach problems. It grows best in a sunny location sheltered from the wind. Sow in April and harvest from July to August.
