RED OKRA : BLOSSOM

My red okra is getting blossom.
I think their growth isn't optimal, the papaya tree cast the okra patch get shaded.



The picture above is a flower bud a day before blossom.


This is the blossom...


A beautiful flowers...


I hope it will be a great pod...

  9. I agree with some of the others - that Okra is really beautifiul. Even though I don't like eating Okra, I admire it as an ornamental plant, and that red on is very special!

    1. Yeah, the okra's taste and texture are unusual. It's not easy to make dishes from this veggie. Actually, I'm agree with you.
