Motherland Okra (rare variety)
It’s an heirloom variety that supposedly came out of Nigeria in the 1700-the 1800s and doesn’t look like any okra you’ve ever seen. It’s a very reliable and productive staple there. These seeds have been handed down by generations of native West Africans. Also, another benefit of this step above okra is used for its healing properties and is prescribed by Doctors in Africa for women who are bearing children to slow the rate of blood loss and induce labor in some cases. The leaves are edible and used to make Okra Soup called NGUMBO/NGOMBO in Native Nigeria pronounced Gumbo for us who live in America.
