The most popular use for okra may be as a thickening agent for gumbo and soups, with its gooey insides. It is also quite tasty when baked, broiled, roasted, fried, steamed, canned and pickled, quite the versatile veggie! Before you even get to the fruits, the plant itself produces gorgeous flowers, similar to hibiscus blooms, making it an edible ornamental. The leaves are spineless, making harvesting of the 3" pods easy work; however, wear long sleeves and gloves when working around okra plants. They can cause irritation and even cause allergic reactions in some people.
