How To Save Okra Seeds


Staff member
Okra is probably some of the easiest seeds to save:

1. Leave the pod on the plant.

2. When the plant dies, remove pod.

3. Run string through pod.

4. Tie pods up in shed, car port... etc. Somewhere out of the rain.

5. Over the course of a few months the iside of the pod will dry and the seeds will start to rattle around on the inside.

Maybe dedicate a couple of plants to seed production? The more you harvest okra, the more it grows. When the pods are not harvested, production will slow down. So you will get fewer pods from plants that are not being harvested.
