Lady's Finger is a green flowering plant with ornamental seed pods and tender leaves which will liven up any sauce, stews, soup and is a classic ingredient for vegetable curries. It has a reasonably mild flavour and will add an interesting texture to many dishes. Enjoy a lovely show of creamy flowers with deep red centres before you pick the pods - approximately five days after the flowers have opened.
Prefers a well-prepared soil. Before sowing apply a complete fertiliser or rake in organic matter to aid growth.
