Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
Thomas Jefferson frequently grew okra at Monticello after his retirement in 1809, often as a companion plant to his “tomatas.” Jefferson family recipes include various types of okra stews in which okra was blended with tomatoes and other tangy vegetables. A member of the Mallow family, okra is a highly ornamental vegetable with large, tropical leaves and handsome yellow flowers. 'Cow's Horn' is a southern heirloom variety with distinctive curved fruits.

Direct sow seeds outdoors after the last frost, when soil temperatures reach above 65°. To hasten germination, soak seeds for 24 hours before sowing. Harvest the young fruits when they are no longer than 3". Approximately 20-25 seeds per packet.
