The Q&A Archives: Okra Source

Question: I am trying to locate a variety of okra that I purchased form a local store last year They cannot get additional seed for me and I am looking for a source for this seed. It is called Split Leaf Emeral Green okra. Do you carry it or might you suggest additional sources for me to check with?

Answer: I had a tough time finding that variety. I did find reference to one called 'Emerald Green Velvet Spineless', also known as 'Emerald', 'Velvet', and 'Emerald Green'. Could this be the one? The following companies used to carry this seed; you'll have to contact them to see if they still do.
