RE: Okra pod softening at harvest

Water is the same or different in the fields. If the plant is water-stressed, the pods suffer.

Okra does not last long after harvest even under the best conditions. I found that picking it early in the morning gave the best results. And get the pods in to a cool area, but not refrigerator temps. Too cold is also bad.
