Red okra (Red bhendi) can be a visual delight to grow in your kitchen garden. It has green leaves with burgundy stems, leaf ribs, and branches. It takes 50-65 days to maturity. Full sun light produces healthy plants while in cooler climates (below 20 degrees) the results are not as predictable. It can also be grown in containers, but the minimum size for these should be 12″-14″ (depth and width). The red-colored 6″ – 8″ long pods can be eaten raw when tender, but turn green when cooked.
