Mammoth is a spineless variety of Okra that is quite vigourous and productive. It grows very tall and can reach 2m. It has vivid green slightly ribbed pods that are best picked under 10cm in length. It is cooked in soups, stews, battered, fried, steamed, grilled or dried. It is used as thickening agent for soups and stews and can be ground into a fine powder and added to food such as cous cous to stop the grains from sticking. Seeds can be pressed to make a good quality oil high in protein. Okra can be roasted and ground to make a coffee substitute. Okra originates in Egypt and needs warm soil to succeed. It can be grown in Temperate regions but needs care to ensure enough warmth exists for it to be successful. Soak the seed overnight before planting to achieve best germination. Plant the seed 2cm deep in the garden when frosts are well clear Keep the soil fertile, well drained and moist. Okra likes very slightly acid soil around pH 6-6.5 and in full sun with a spacing of 35-45cm. Pick the fruit everyday to achieve the best results and to ensure the pods do not get to old.
