Burgundy Okra is a wonderful plant to grow…a vegetable from both my lineages of Cyprus and Punjab….and one I have great affection for 🙂 It is a perennial flowering plant belonging to the mallows family.

Okra is a superfood and tridoshic vegetable which ayurvedic traditions say nourish bones, balance blood sugars, treats constipation, assists ulcer and digestive disorders, is a prebiotic, nourishes reproductive tissues- among many other actions….this vegetable is of high medicinal and nutritional value with high protein and fibre content, and detoxification actions due to the sulfur content.
