What is Clemson spineless okra? As the name suggests, Clemson Spineless okra was developed by the horticultural research department of Clemson University in South Carolina. Introduced in 1939, Clemson okra immediately won an AAS award in that same year. Originally, okra comes from northern Africa, where it still grows wild. This unusual member of the hibiscus family still has an important part in African and Mediterranean cuisine, as well as being a culinary tradition in the American South.

Keep soil mix temp. 80-90°F (27-32°C) for fast germination. Thin to one plant per pot/cell. Transplant 12-18" apart in rows 3' apart. Do not disturb roots.
