Home-grown okra has little in common with its rubbery supermarket counterpart: grow your own and see the difference. Just be sure to sow more than you think you'll eat, as only a couple of pods ripen at once. Okra is related to hibiscus and has similar showy flowers. If you won't grow it for stew, grow it for the vase!
