Okra is known in many English-speaking countries as ladies’ fingers, ochro or gumbo, is a flowering plant in the mallow family. It is valued for its edible green seed pods.

Okra leaves may be cooked in a similar way to the greens of beets or dandelions. The leaves are also eaten raw in salads. Okra seeds may be roasted and ground to form a caffeine-free substitute for coffee.

We are a family of okra lovers. My mother always plant this in her small garden not only for my father who is suffering from diabetes but for the entire family as well. She knows that there are plenty of health benefits that we could get from it. if you like eating this slimy vegetable too, you’ll be glad to know that it is very nutritious.
