Okra (Clemson Spineless)

http://www.durgan.org/URL/?TRKPF 11 September 2010 Okra (Clemson Spineless)

The garden was neglected for three weeks and the Okra produced extensively. The okra was too large for ordinary use, being somewhat fibrous, so the fruit was frozen to make soft and boiled for about 20 minutes to make into a mash, and strained to remove the fiber to make juice. Two liters of juice was produced, which was pressure sterilized for long term storage at room temperature. Whether it has all the normal nutrients, I can only guess, but the process seemed better than discarding.

Okra has been grown for three years and this is the best crop produced in that time. Generally this plant is not suitable for my Zone 5.
