Okra - Clemson Spineless
The okra plant itself is very beautiful. It is part of the hibiscus family and makes very attractive flowers. These plants also love the heat, they are one of the very few that can grow in the warmer months of Florida.
We have chosen the Clemson spineless variety because as the name implies, this plant is spineless. Many other varieties of okra have tiny little thorns on them making them difficult to work with.
