The present study was carried out in the field of Department of Seed Science and Technology, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar, Haryana during 2018-2019 to investigate the effect of picking stages on seed quality of okra. The okra plant was divided in three parts on the basis of node numbers which constitutes 1st to 5th nodes as part1 and 6th to 10th nodes as part 2 and 11th to 15th nodes as part 3 respectively. The parameters recorded during the study was flowering at 1st, 6th and 11th node, fruit length at maturity, seed yield per fruit, test weight of 1000 seeds and number of seeds per fruit at harvesting. The study suggested that the picking of fruits developed on middle nodes (6th to 10th) showed higher values for parameters recorded as compare to lower (1st to 5th) and upper nodes (11th to 15th).

Keywords: Okra, Picking, Nodes, Seed, Fruits.
