Notes:

Okra bushes grow in Egypt along side canals. It has a nice looking light purple to pink flower

It is a popular dish there and in Sudan, as well the southern United States, and in the Caribbean.

In Egypt, large pods are undesirable, and the smaller the fruit, the more tender and less seeds it has.

The stem part has to be removed by using a small paring knife and peeling in a way to leave the fruit intact with a cone shaped end.

Large pods are consumed in the Sudan in a hot dish known as Wika.
