Red burgundy okra is an annual vegetable that stands out in the garden but blends in in the kitchen.
Outside, the growing okra pods of the “Red Burgundy” variety add a pop of purple color to the landscape, but when cooked, this okra variety turns green. It looks and tastes like other okra varieties, offering the same eggplant-like flavor that cooks are used to. Okra is an African native, grown as an annual in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 3 through 9. Seeds are typically started indoors and germinate within eight to 15 days. Plants reach full maturity in about 53 days.
Soak the okra seeds in water for 24 hours before planting.Plant the seeds 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep in a tray of fresh, well-drained potting soil two to three weeks before the last anticipated frost. Gently water the newly planted seeds and place the tray indoors where it will receive sunlight and be in temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Water the plants gently as often as needed to keep the soil evenly moist but make sure that the seeds are never sitting in standing water. Transplant the okra seedlings into the outdoor garden one month after the last frost, spacing them 12 inches apart in full sun. Soil temperatures must be over 70 degrees Fahrenheit and the ambient temperature at least 80 degrees to produce a satisfactory crop.
