We went away for a wedding for a few days and this is what happened to the buah bendi..huhu! I guess by this stage it will be too woody for me to pick and cook it. I decided to keep it on the plant and let it grow mature so that I can harvest the seed pods from the okra later.
So far, this is the only mammoth spineless okra that managed to bloom from flower to fruit. (Yes, it’s called as fruit even though it’s eaten as vegetable)
Anyone know how long should I keep it on the plant before I can pluck it to harvest the pods? Will the fruit turn brown to show that it is matured enough?
