I have being using this crop for two months now and has proved beneficial. But it is difficult to get it here in Kuruman, sold out within hours of stock arrival. Do you know any suppliers near Kuruman or Kimberley where I can buy just for own consumption?

Try buying seed for next Spring planting. Okra germinates fairly easily and if you get started early in the Spring you will have a good few months of harvest. Seed is normally readily available but can also be sourced from online suppliers.
