Great okra

EarlyMaturity 2.0
 

What are the pros? Great taste, prolific

What are the cons? Low germination rate

Review:

Growing okra in SE Michigan can be a bit of a challenge. This okra had a low germination rate (probably due to cold nights), but once it got established, it was tall, branching, and prolific. Tasted great and the pods were huge and still tender. I will definitely grow this again this summer.

Produced a couple weeks earlier than by old standard Clemson Spineless. The pods stayed tender to a quite sizable pod. Produced well into the fall. Definitely liked our hot summer.

What are the pros? Great to eat raw

What are the cons? Almost too tall

Review:

As others have written, this variety is tender and great to eat raw. In fact, that's how I ate most of this year's harvest because it's way easier than cutting up and frying/sauteing. What struck me is how tall these plants grew (10 feet tall) and how thick their "trunk" gets. I spent some time today pulling up last year's dead plants (tomatoes, peppers, etc.). When I came to my Burnese okra, I ended up cutting them down with a handsaw instead of pulling them up. The base of these plants are like small trees. Very woody with bark, and measuring 1 3/4" across. Anyway. I found that interesting and thought I'd share. I saved some pods and plan to use those to grow new plants this year. Would definitely recommend. Okra is one of my favorite plants... what with its beautiful flowers, super fast growth and high yield? What can beat it? Maybe I can even use the dead plants as firewood! Is there nothing okra can't do?

What are the pros? flavor

What are the cons? Low producer

Review:

This okra was the worst performer of my three okras on the Colorado Front Range (the other two were Fife Creek Cowhorn and Alabama Red). It was the first to produce pods, and they are might fine tasting, but the plants stayed small and spindly. I think it may be better suited to a very hot climate maybe than what we got in Denver area.
