So I don't guess you remember what the seed looked like?----perhaps a little, very hard, round, green seed about twice as big as a BB?

I'll tell you what happened. I'm staying in a friends apt in Budapest Hungary and I found some containers and seeds. Just to kill time I planted Cucumbers, tomatoes, basil, peppers and then a bag of mixed seeds. Fully expecting nothing to grow because I have no idea what I'm doing the balcony now looks like a jungle lol. It may be okra or anything from the mixed bag, I have no idea

If the seeds came from Hungary it very well could be an old heirloom okra as I have direct generational okra seeds from Germany and Poland which I grow every year but are not shaped like yours. Time will tell I suppose

Thanks very much Chuck. I go back to Kentucky in June and will be giving all the plants to a family downstairs. They will take photos and I will see when I come back in January. I was just curious because it just suddenly grew once I removed Basil from the pot. Thanks again buddy

Please remind them to keep the containers and try to harvest whatever seeds they can. You are passing on more than pots and plants. Good for you!
