  • Okra has a long, slender, tube-like shape filled with tiny white seeds. It is slightly curved with shallow ridges and green fuzzy skin. Okra is the unripe fruit of the okra plant. The most common commercial variety is green pods, but there are also yellow and burgundy color pods. Okra is usually two to six inches in length. The taste is sweet and grassy with a texture that can be crisp and juicy or dense and creamy depending on the application. Okra may become slimy and silky when it's cooked. The key is not to overcook the okra. Okra is a consumer favorite in the South. Common application includes deep-fried, roasted, and Gumbo. Okra is available year-round.
