Crop Information & Guides

Planting 

Despite being widely used in Asian restaurants across Europe, the crop is not widely grown, mainly because suitable varieties have not been abaulable for glasshouse or plastic tunnel production. Testing in multiple NorthernEurope locations has shown Burpee's new 'Super Bhindi' to be an excellent performer. The medium vigorous, well branched plants grow to  1.5m, and produce a prolific crop of deep green fruit that are best harvested when 7-10cm long to ensure the most succulent, tender texture. 'Super Bhindi's hibiscus like flowers bring a touch of early morning exotic to any greenhouse.
