What are the pros? everything!

What are the cons? groundhogs agree

Review:

When I first moved here, I trialed tons of vegetables for many years to accomodate our difficult conditions. This variety beat everything else, hands down! Great flavor, can eat raw, less goey, easy to grow, bears when only 15" high here, tolerates all conditions so far. I love it that it can be planted late and still produce enough okra to make me happy! It can be fit in anywhere and still do very well. I have never had a disease problem with this plant. The only trouble is the groundhogs agree it is the best! This is now my reliable standard okra. Wouldn't plant any other now.

Review:

This okra has become my favorite! produces quickly and in abundance. Good flavor and tender even when they get a bit large. We let a few grow pods grow with amazing results; huge decorative, conversation starters. Oh, and they dry well also.

Review:

After a few years of trying out different okras, I have found my favorites. I like to grow this and Stewart's Zeebest for eating raw. RAW okra is incredibly healthy just google it. These 2 varities are tender. Zeebest is sweeter, but this has more okra flavor...get both! Then, I also grow Eagle Pass and Hill Country, but not for raw eating. The Burmese and Zeebest usually are eaten just about as fast as getting back up to the house. They are also good cooked any way at all.

Review:

I'm in a hot and relatively wet area. Central Florida The plants measure about 7 feet tall and produced approximately 100 okra pods each. If you catch them at about 12 inches or shorter, they will be nice and tender. As mentioned by others, they are great raw! If I forget to harvest a pod, it would get to be about 18" long and be about the circumference of the handle of a typical baseball bat! Huge! Highly recommended! These will ALWAYS have a welcome space in my garden!

I've been enjoying this Okra for about 3 weeks now. This is some of the best tasting Okra I've ever had. The other reviewers were right, this one is a keeper. I will be growing this every year now - its that good!
