What are the pros? Taste, yield,weather resistant

What are the cons? Spiney

Review:

Easy to grow and tasty, this will produce a large yield once mature. Okra tastes best when picked 3 inches or less. Let them get too big you will get a woody harder flavor.. Seeds are easy to save, just let a few okra grow large and dry out on the plant at the end of the season.. Then take out seeds and dry completely before storing in a cool dry place for the cold season. I planted mine directly in the ground (mid May) after soaking the seeds in a wet paper towel for 24 hours or so. Did about 5-10 seeds per spot and kept the ground nice and wet for several days. Thin them out to the strongest plant when they start growing. Although they are "spineless" my skin still gets irritated so it helps if you choose to wear gloves when harvesting.

What are the pros? Huge producer

What are the cons? None

Review:

First time in 30 years I had a garden big enough to grow Okra. Planted about 30 feet. Once it got going, I had to cut every day. Plants got 10' high. Ate all we could fresh, froze a boatload, canned some, pickled some and gave away a lot. Introduced several people to a Southern staple they hadn't had before. I have seeds soaking tonite to plant tomorrow. I can't say enough good things about Clemson Spineless

What are the pros? Easy to grow, freezes well

What are the cons? None

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.
