Abelmoschus esculentus. By far the most popular cultivated variety of okra, Clemson Spineless Okra Organic is an heirloom that won the AAS prize back in 1939. Over a short period in the heat of summer, plants will grow quickly to 1.2m (4′), and are covered in edible, cream coloured flowers. These are followed by meaty, strongly flavoured pods that add brilliant texture to relishes and chutneys, but also complement stews, soups, and gumbo. Plants really are spineless, and are very easy to grow.
