Okra, a popular southern vegetable, has a mild, almost grassy flavor that is uniquely okra. While it's sometimes compared to the taste of eggplant or green beans, its texture gets more attention. Okra is crunchy when cooked quickly but becomes almost mouthwateringly tender when slow-cooked. We can grow Okra in our northern climate by starting seedlings indoors early and planting in the ground well after the last frost, as they love the warmth of summer. Sprouts sells Okra in 4-packs, giving you a head start for enjoying this popular Southern veggie!
