Touch the okra. Ripe okra should feel tender to the touch. Wear gloves and long sleeves when feeling and harvesting the okra, as its small hairs are often irritating to the skin.

Measure the okra. okra should be picked when it is 2 to 3 inches long. The okra becomes too hard to eat when it grows any bigger.

Cut the okra from its stem with pruning shears when it is ready for harvest. A stem that is difficult to cut through indicates the okra is tough and too ripe.

A lemon can be used before it is ripe, but it will not have as much juice and be harder to squeeze. The ripeness of a lemon can be judged by its color, and it is ripe when no green tinge remains.

It is ripe if you slap it with the palm of your hand and it vibrates as if it is hollow. You can also pluck it and get the same responce from the melon.
