Çiçek, meaning flower in Turkish, is a traditional okra variety from Amasya, Turkey. In Anatolia, seed keepers usually don’t name seeds, and when they do, they either reference the locality of the seed or they refer to a typical trait of the seed. Pods are best when harvested at flower stage, hence the name.
Small pods are tender and flavorful, and a staple ingredient in Konya’s famous okra soup made with lamb. Çiçek is a very productive mid-season okra.
