Okra or okro, known in many English-speaking countries as ladies’ fingers or ochro, is a flowering plant in the mallow family. It is valued for its edible green seed pods. Best grows in full sun.
Pods are cooked, pickled, eaten raw, or included in salads. In India the pods stuffed with spices are a popular dish. Okra may be used in developing countries to mitigate malnutrition and alleviate food insecurity.
Raw okra is 90% water, 2% protein, 7% carbohydrates and negligible in fat. In a 100 gram amount, raw okra is rich (20% or more of the Daily Value, DV) in dietary fiber, vitamin C and vitamin K, with moderate contents of thiamin, folate and magnesium (all values are approximations).
