Thai okra has a similar taste and texture to common okra, but it is, in fact, a member of the Luffa or Loofah family. The immature fruit is used as a vegetable, and when mature the fruit is used as a bath sponge or skin care implement. Thai okra has all the versatility of the beloved vegetable we are familiar with, just with an Asian flair. Thai okra is a good source of vitamin C and fiber.
