This study was conducted to develop method of producing okra under open field condition and the 10 cultivars of okra for selecting proper cultivar in Jeju, Korea. The okra pod’s color is divided into red and green and shape is into round and five-angled. The tall of plant ranged 170-237 cm and ‘Pusa-sawani’ is tallest. The pod’s length ranged 9.2~11.0 cm and width is 12.7-16.9 mm. The pod’s weight ranged 11.6-14.6 g and ‘THA-Kasassert’ is heaviest. The number of pods ranged 6.6-18.9 pods/ plant, ‘Shimano-beny’ is largest number. ‘Shimano-beny’ and ‘Pusa-sawani’ cultivar was the highest yield as red and green strains to 229 g/plant and 191 g/plant. The green strains, ‘Pusa-sawani’, ‘THA-Kasassert’ and ‘Finger-five’ were excellent in the pod's color, weight and yield and ‘Retdosan’ in the red strain were grown best of open field on the temperate area.
