An introduced African crop that performs well in the southern US.Soak seeds overnight for best germination of this warm-season annual. Plant 1/2 inch deep, allow 18-24 inches between plants. Plants grow to 4-7 feet tall; produce until frost. Pick small pods for eating.Self-pollinates, but the showy flowers attract insects, so cross pollination is common. Isolate varieties or bag flower heads to prevent crossing. Allow pods to dry and mature on the plant. Harvest as pods start to split open to avoid losing seed. Remove seed carefully.
