Acid soils occur commonly in the high–rainfall areas along the hilly regions of Sylhet in Bangladesh. It is a serious constraint to crop production and a primary yield-limiting factor. An experiment was conducted to select the superior okra cultivar in relation to growth characters and yield attributes in acid soil conditions. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications. A total of 11 cultivars were evaluated on the basis of growth and yield attributes. Results revealed that early flowering and maximum number of fruits plant-1 observed in the cultivar Indian. Longest fruit length picked up in Bankim, whereas JO-1 showed the largest fruit diameter. The cultivar JO-1 cultivar showed superiority in number of seeds fruit-1. JO-3 produced higher in individual fruit weight and total number of flowers plant-1. It appears attractive with ridge less, slender uniform size and shape. It was found tasty more due to softness and less fiber content. Regarding fruit yield, the cultivar JO-3,  JO-2, Bankim and Okra Onamika performed better. Based on overall performance in growth and yield attributes comparatively JO-3 proved to be promising cultivar in acid soil conditions of Sylhet.
