    Yes, yes they do. How much space do you need with them? Do you have to stake them?

    Okra grow to be about 5-8 feet tall. It isn't very wide, but can be really tall. No, I don't have to stake them, but I do have to wear long sleeves because I break out when I pick it if I don't.

    Thanks for the kind words. If you lived closer then I would hook you up with some fresh veggies.

    I wouldn't say all, but I know a lot of people that do. It is just itchy and causes skin irritation that normally goes away within a few hours. Both my parents used to break out so they started wearing long sleeves and gloves. When I was younger it didn't bother me, but the older I get the more the leaves irritate my skin so now I try to cover up also.

    But again, it is somewhat mild so I wouldn't let it keep you from growing Okra if you have the chance. It might not even both your skin at all.
