What are the pros? Great to eat raw
What are the cons? Almost too tall
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?
Would you recommend this product to a friend?
