Red/Burgundy Okra

I have grown "RED" okra before.  I loved it.  The stalks can get large without tasting like cardboard, and it adds lots of color in the Garden. Something I did not know about Okra is that is comes from Africa, and so that is why it loves the heat.  My Mother always told me that the soil needs to be warm before Okra can grow, so do not plant before June!  I am buying my seeds from:  Of course photos will follow once June gets here!  I am also going to work on some recipes to stuff my Okra with different concoctions!  I am thinking the fresh Tomato's & Zucchini I will be growing will be a great place to start....
