What are the pros? Tasty, very nice looking plant
What are the cons? Slower growing than other okra
I ordered this variety a few months back, mainly because of how nice the plants and seed pods looked. I planted them at the same time as the normal green varieties I like, and I noticed that they are a bit slower growing, but seemed to produce flowers a bit faster than the others. I had 100% germination success with the 10 seeds I planted. The pods are also softer for longer than the green ones, and it seems as if the taste is a lot more subtle so I find them better to eat fresh than any other variety I've grown. The plant itself looks amazing, the dark red adding much desired color diversity to my vegetable garden. Would certainly recommend to anyone who likes okra and wants to have a decorative and productive variety in their garden.
