Clemson Spineless Okra is a variety of okra known for its large, spineless pods and mild, slightly sweet flavor. It is one of the most popular varieties of okra due to its lack of spines, which makes it easier to harvest and handle.
To grow Clemson Spineless Okra, you will need:
- Well-drained, fertile soil
- Warm temperatures (70-80F is ideal)
- Full sun
- Seeds or seedlings
Prepare the soil by tilling or digging to a depth of at least 8 inches. Add compost or other organic matter to improve the soil's fertility.
Sow the seeds or transplant seedlings after all danger of frost has passed. Space the plants about 2-3 feet apart, and cover with 1/4 inch of soil.
Water the okra regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
Fertilize the okra with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.
Keep the okra plants free of weeds and remove any diseased or damaged leaves to help prevent disease.
Harvest the okra when the pods are about 2-4 inches long and still tender, usually about 50-60 days after planting.
