Buying Tips

Okra can be found in the produce section of most health food stores, specialty markets, and supermarkets. Larger pods are tough and fibrous, so look for brightly colored pods smaller than 3 inches (9cm) long, with smooth, unblemished skin and firm texture.

Varieties

Okra varies somewhat in size. It can be purchased fresh, canned, or frozen.
