Does Okra Need a Trellis?

Here's some expert insight to get you started in growing okra.

Okra plants have vigorous vines that love to climb.

And they grow tall under the full sun.

Okra pods are often too heavy for soft stems they grow on.

So a trellis is needed for most okra varieties, but not all.

You can train the plant's stem to a trellis with wire or rope.

Or use a wooden stake or tomatoe cage to hold them upright.
