Okra is the seed pod of a tropical plant. The seeds are long and usually have vertical rib-like stripes. These green seed pods have a unique texture and a slightly spicy flavour. The slightly sweet undertone in the okra can be compared to the flavour of green beans. When you cook the okra, the vegetable will become a bit slimy and is ideal to thicken soup for example.

Growing and harvesting

Our main okra supplier grows okra in the areas Nakorn Pathom en Suphanburi on a field of 0,8 hectare. The soil in these areas have the right composition to grow flavourful okra. In addition, the logistics network in these areas is also very good. It takes 45 days before the fruit can be harvested. After harvesting, the okra is cleaned, sorted on size and packed. The okra is transported by plane to the Netherlands. The best tasting okra is green, soft, about 5 to 10 inches long.
