Also called Gombo, this plant produces a fruit that can be eaten raw or cooked, with a taste somewhat similar to eggplant. Young leaves can replace spinach. In some countries, the mature seeds are roasted and used as coffee beans. A member of the hibiscus family (Okra latin name is Hibiscus esculentus), its flower is one of the most beautiful in the garden.
Originally from Africa, Okra entered Spain in the 8th Century with the moorish invasion. Later introduced in the United States by African slaves, it was considered for some time as poor people food. It is an essential ingredient in gumbo and is commonly used in Louisiana and Southern States cuisine.

Aged 90, aunt Alice (Marie-Alice Laflamme Gosselin) still grew her now famous cucumber. She chose the biggest and nicest ones, collected the seeds, let them soak in milk on Saint-Antoine's eve, and planted them in her garden in some rich and fertile soil. After Alice's death in 2005, the last seeds were given to a dedicated man who helped us discover this variety.
This cucumber is resistant to diseases and insects alike, and very productive. It is easily digested, but the skin is rarely eaten for it is lightly bitter. We prefer the smaller cucumber to the bigger fruits. The flesh is delicious and very fragrant, similar in taste to the English type cucumber.
Exceptional heirloom variety.
Package : 15 seeds. Not that many because extracting the seeds from this cucumber is very challenging, it only produces a few.
