Q.My okra grew too long and are hard

Zone North alabama | Marissaennis14 added on August 7, 2015 | Answered

I am inexperienced and did not know to trim my okra short. They are long (about 5-7 in) and hard. Can I still pickle them or fry them?

I would say they are a better candidate for long-cooking soups and stews, otherwise I am afraid you will find them a bit too tough.
