Name: Abigail’s Coffee Okra
Scientific Name: Abelmoschus Esculentus
An old heirloom from Panama, it was named after the source of the seeds and long time grower, Abigail, who along with his village grows it for the large pods that produce numerous seeds that when dried and roasted make an excellent caffeine free coffee substitute. It is very long season okra and is slow to produce so it is best grown where the warm season is very long. The pods are tender and tasty when harvested young. Okra can cause skin irritation so protective clothing and gloves are recommended when working with mature plants.
