Robbie’s Produce Tips: California Okra

rob with okra_editedFresh Okra

It’s California-grown this time of year, which is the best time to buy it.

  • Choose okra that is bright green in color.
  • Choose dry firm pods.
  • Only wash pods when ready to use. Wet pods will get very slimy.
  • Older okra will get black, not to be confused with bruising. Okra is delicate and will bruise.
  • Store in refrigerator for up to three days.
