Store your harvested okra in the refrigerator in perforated plastic bags. Do not wash it before storage as this will encourage the growth of mold quickly. Use the stored okra within a few days before the pods start to darken.
There are so many reasons you will want to add okra to your list of vegetables you are growing in your garden. It is easy to grow and basically trouble-free as long as it’s provided with the right conditions to grow.
