okra seed saving-hibiscus in area

I have the best okra this year, I let a few of the pods get too ripe, so I thought I'd just save my own seed. I let them get good and brown, and the seeds look great. I just got to thinking though, okra is in the hibiscus family, and so is rose of sharon, right? So the seed I saved from okra growing in my garden with rose of sharon bushes 40 feet away, and hardy hibiscus plants 20 feet away might not be good? or will that stuff cross at all? Does anyone know, or should I just plant it and let you know...

Unless you have abelmoschus hibiscus growing, it won't cross pollinate with okra.
