Jing Orange Okra is an heirloom, open-pollinated okra variety that originated from Asia. It produces solid harvests of spineless pods that have a beautiful red to orange hue. The pods are also exceptionally tender compared to other varieties. The pods will remain tender at 6" long, but are best picked at 3-4" long. The plants typically reach 5-6' tall, but plant height can be largely depending on climate and growing conditions. This variety has shown exceptional drought-tolerance and performs well in the warmer months.

Jing Orange Okra may be direct-seeded or transplanted. In early spring, we recommend transplanting to get a jump start on the growing season. Okra prefers warmer temperatures for seed to germinate. By transplanting, you can have plants in the ground before the soil temperature warms enough to direct seed. We recommend starting transplants 4-5 weeks before the desired outdoor planting date. Okra transplants grow great in our heavy-duty seed starting trays, where they develop a solid root ball with roots that are trained to grow downward. Plants are ready to go in the ground when they can be easily pulled from the cells in the seed starting tray.

For late spring and summer plantings, direct seeding is preferred. Jing Orange can be easily planted with a walk-behind planter like our Hoss Garden Seeder. We suggest succession planting okra throughout the warmer months. Once plants get tall, they may become less productive and harvesting will become more difficult. As a result, we recommend planting a crop of okra in spring, summer and again in fall.

The Best verity we have grown.

So we live in a very Hot and dry part of the country where temps hit 100 regularly. I have grown these right next to Clemson spineless. This verity produces earlier and Very consistant through out the year till freeze. They taste amazing. Our favorite for sure and sells well at the farmers market.
