Okra, also known as ladyfingers, are flowering plants in the Malvaceae family, valued for their edible green seed pods. These elongated, ribbed pods have a pointed tip and a velvety texture. Okra pods are typically harvested when they are 3-4 inches long and still young and tender. The flavor of okra is mild and slightly earthy, with a subtle grassy aroma. When cooked, okra develops a unique mucilaginous (slimy) texture that thickens stews, soups, and gumbos.
