A farmer in Bhopal has given a twist to green ladyfinger and is growing red okra in his garden, and claims it is healthier than the existing natural variety.

Misrilal Rajput from Madhya Pradesh’s Bhopal is growing red okra.

“The ladyfinger that I grow is red in color instead of its usual green. It is more beneficial and nutritious than green ladyfinger. It is extremely beneficial for people who are facing heart and blood pressure issues, diabetes, high cholesterol,” Rajput was quoted speaking to ANI.

He said, “This ladyfinger is 5-7 times more expensive than ordinary ladyfingers. It is being sold from 75-80 to 300-400 per 250 gram/500 gram in some malls.”

He informed, “I had purchased 1 kg seeds from an agricultural research institute in Varanasi. I sowed them in the first week of July. In around 40 days, it started growing.”
