What are the pros? Fast growing, attractive
What are the cons? Flower's bloom & die quickly
I grew 5 varieties of Okra this year and this is easily the best producer of all of them. It was not the first of the five to sprout, but several months later, is the tallest of them. It produces beautiful yellow flowers followed by fast growing, fat pods that stay tender until they are quite large. So far I've only had to toss one that was too fibrous. When cut into, the ribbed pods make slices that look like stars. My favorite way to cook them is to slice, lay them out on a cookie sheet, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle salt and pepper and then roast at 400 for about 15 minutes. Each variety is a different shape or color, so the display when I roast a bunch at once, is quite attractive.
