The Q&A Archives: Okra Seeds

Question: I have a few okra pods left over. Not enough to make a meal out of so I've decided to let them go to seed. How do you know when the seeds are mature enough to be viable next year?

Answer: The best approach would be to let them dry on the plant. Then cut them off and shell out the seeds for storage in a jar in the refrigerator. If you need to hurry and get the plants out, at least wait until the pods start to get brown streaks. Then cut off the pods and place them in a dry spot with good air circulation until dry.

Good luck with your seeds!
