Sowing: Okra loves heat, so gardeners with short growing seasons may need to start their Clemson Spineless okra seeds indoors; plan to set them out 3-4 weeks after the last frost. Before planting the seeds, soak them overnight to encourage faster germination. Plant 2-3 seeds in one peat pot, and keep them at 80-90 degrees F until germination; thin to the strongest plant by cutting off the rest. When the air temperature reaches a consistent 60 degrees F, plant the seedlings in full sun 12-15″ apart in rows 3′ apart. For direct sowing in warmer climates, sow Clemson Spineless okra seeds 3/4″ deep and later thin the plants to 12-15″ apart.
Growing: When the seedlings reach a height of 4″, apply mulch to conserve moisture and control weeds. Keep the plants moist during dry weather. In cooler climates, it may be necessary to apply black plastic or provide row covers for adequate heat.
Harvesting: Clemson Spineless okra should be harvested at 3″ for best taste and tenderness. This variety is spineless for a painless harvest.
