1ac; Lady's Fingers - Okra

2d; Russian Leader of Old - Czar.

If Czar is correct then Okra is spelled Ocra, which it isn't.

Can anyone please explain where I'm wrong?

Thanks for that Danny.

I did "Google" Ksar but got nothing that made sense. One was an acronym for "Kent Search and Rescue", another for an Arabic castle plus others for nothing to do with Old Russian Leaders. I've just checked in my Chambers dictionary and does have Ksar' definition - Miltonic form of Tsar.

I should have looked in Chambers earlier.
https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/ocra I had zax for 5a is that wrong then? I thought ocra was an alternative spelling of ocra, which makes 1d czar
1a.Okra
2d.Ksar
5a.Sax
Margo, submitted on line as correct
Guess it must be right then Danny :-)
It's also called a sax, saxe, slate cleaver, slate cutters' trimmer, slate trimmer, and zax. It was used to trim and punch holes in roofing slate.
