Chinese Okra

A versatile vegetable used in Chinese cuisine

Chinese okra is dull green in color with ridges running length-wise along the length of the fruit. They are about 4-5 inches and have small white seeds. Chinese okra has a taste and texture similar to zucchini.  Chinese okra is used in Chinese cooking, often braised, steamed or sauteed. 

Note: The ribs of the Chinese okra must be trimmed to reduce its bitter flavor before using.
