From the area around Carrizo Springs and Eagle Pass, Texas. Productive plants are a favorite of the local farmer who grows this variety. A great okra that is less slimy than others; big pods are tender and delicious.

What are the pros? not slimy

What are the cons? Can't find any

Review:

I planted this because we live in Texas so figured it would do good and turns out it is my new favorite. The pods are fatter than what I'm used too but they don't get hard like you would expect (they eventually will like any okra but you can use them at a larger size). The best thing about them is they are not slimy! I love okra but don't like the deep fried battered ones because it's just too greasy so we saut? these in coconut oil and then sprinkle in some corn meal to get that southern fried taste without all the grease. It never once got slimy and cooked up perfect. Oh my, I could just eat it all day. And, the plants are tall and keep going no matter how hot it is. We pick every day. I will be doing this one year after year. Thank you for carrying this one!

What are the pros? Taste and production

What are the cons? Slow Sprouting

Review:

This okra is great once it takes off. It was a little slow sprouting, although that could have been due to a very wet spring, but the wait was worth it. They are short fat and delicious and are going to be in my garden from now on! Highly recommend! It was a crazy year with lots of rain and a cool summer and they still produced up toward the end of October!

What are the pros? Prolific, hardy

What are the cons? It's woody & fibrous

Review:

This variety needs to be picked when pods are only 1-2 inches! If not, they are fibrous, woody and dry.

What are the pros? Delicious and hardy

What are the cons? Take a long time to germinate

Review:

I grew this okra last year and we loved the HUGE but delicious fat pods! So tender, very flavorful and not slimy at all. We ate ours every day saut?ed in olive oil with salt and pepper. They didn't want to germinate until it got very hot in July but then wow look out! They produced well into the fall, and like other reviewers said mine were at least 12 feet tall - big enough for the birds to hide in! I saved seeds for friends last year and I am ordering more because we will be planting at least twice as many!

What are the pros? tasty with interesting shape

What are the cons? got VERY tall

Review:

While the Eagle Pass Okra was not as prolific as Perkins, the interesting red and green foliage, deeply ridged pods were fun . Delicious taste and when sliced looked like stars in the pan! It started a bit slower than the Perkins, but soon passed it up in height. Sold well at Farmers Market
