This page talks about how to buy Doomsday Okra Seeds from David's Garden Seeds®. Most people expect okra to be green. The purple okra may fool some scavengers.
This is our Doomsday Okra section. It gives instructions on how many okra plants are needed to feed one person for a year.
are about 30 calories in one cup of okra. On a 1200 calorie diet that
is 40 cups of okra per day. About five pods of okra will make one cup.
One okra plant will produce about 20 pods of okra. You would need 1460
plants. Let's say about 2000 plants per year. You will need about
3000 square feet of space to grow okra for one person for one year. So let's hope you have plenty of other foods to eat because 40 cups of okra to eat each day is a whole lot!
Okra can be dried, frozen and canned. It will last about 24 hours without refrigeration. Plant so it does not mature all at once. Okra does not like cold weather but it loves and thrives in the heat.
You will need proper storing equipment on hand to process the okra.
The following is from an email from one of our customers. She sent two photos of her okra garden with this note:
I am about to can more okra for our family and friends. I have talked about your okra for years and have steered people to purchase them on Amazon. Every single seed always comes up and produces. We have okra until the end of October every year without fail. This year in drought stricken North East Texas has been no different.
I don’t write people and I don’t write reviews but I wanted to thank you for producing an excellent seed crop to feed our family.
My water is boiling and my jars are ready. I stopped mid process to run take pictures in this blessed rain to show you how awesome your okra grows and produces.
Thank you and have a blessed day.
