Okra (Lady’s Fingers, Ladies Fingers, Bhindi)

 Feed Sparingly
  • Common Name: Okra (Lady’s Fingers, Ladies Fingers, Bhindi)
  • Latin Name: Abelmoschus esculentus
  • Family Name: Malvaceae
The Okra fruits, which are calcium-rich and low in carbohydrates, should be fed only sparingly to tortoises that are a fruit-eating species, because they are fairly high in oxalates.   

The leaves and flowers of Okra are fine to feed in moderation to all species as part of a varied diet.
