Review:

Being born and raised in SC, Clemson Spineless was the okra I was raised on. I've grown it all my life, and although I've tried other varieties, I always come back to this one. I usually pinch the top to make it branch once it gets about a foot tall, then pinch the tips of the branches to make it bush out. I usually plant about a dozen plants a year, which gives me plenty to eat and plenty to freeze. This is my first year growing it in North Florida, but I imagine it will do very well.

What are the pros? Good Flavor

What are the cons? Low Yield

Review:

This Okra had a good flavor. I was disappointed with the low yield of these plants. However I will say that we rotated our garden last year and moved the Okra to another part and that could have had something to do with it. Our Okra tends to grow better when planted by the squash.

i planted some seeds a friend gave me, i live in the desert, with barren desert soil, so i put them in a pit with some horse manure, incredible how they have done, theyve been producing all year, planted in april, now oct 7 and they are at their peak, pods are now tender up to 6 inches! and we are getting about 8 nice okra a day with 5 plants.

What are the pros? Long producing

What are the cons? Really tall

Review:

We grow this every year, since the seeds are so easy to save, our initial $2 purchase in 2009 is all the $ we put in it! Plants get nearly 7' tall, which makes harvesting a challenge since I'm only 5' :) as long as okra isn't too long, they stay tender and freeze well.

They literally grew themselves
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? They require NO work.

What are the cons? Pods are REALLY tough.

Review:

I live in eastern KY, and we don't have the best soil here, so i didn't expect many results from these. All that i had to do was sow the seed directly in the ground and cover up with dirt and let nature do the rest. They require absolutely ZERO maintenance. I didn't even have to water them, i let the rain take care of that for me. They produced pods generously but my ONLY problem is that most of the pods are really tough, even the small ones... and i do mean REALLY tough. Tough to the point where i had to discard most of them because they couldn't be cut with a knife.
