red okra - bendi merah - red lady's finger

This is definitely the kind of okra / bendi / lady's fingers we are not very familiar with, both growing or eating. There are 9 plants all over the garden. They behave just like the green version, except everything seem to be red. Kakdah is thinking about the right recipe for these healthy looking fruits. The colour tone matches well against 50 roselle plants in the garden.

  2. I have high hope for them too when they were growing and looking so gorgeous in red...alas,they turn pale green upon contact with heat!! Kak Dah, you have to resort to eating it raw kalau nak maintain warna merah tu...

    1. Selamat Raya Nor..., Probably kakdah will do okra steam. Steaming with most veggies retain their colour. Ratah macam ulam, tak tertelan agaknya.

  9. They are certainly a very striking feature in the garden. I wonder if they turn green when cooked or subjected to heat? How did these taste?
