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? 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

What are the pros? Taste, Texture

What are the cons? None

Review:

When I planted the Eagle Pass, I also planted Burgundy okra. A week after the Burgundy sprouted, I was starting to give up on the Eagle Pass. It finally came up ten days after the Burgundy. After that, there was no stopping it. Grasshoppers ate most of the leaves at first, but it just kept growing. It ended up over 10 feet tall, covered with okra all summer long. I loved the flavor and the texture of this okra. It even converted an okra hater to an okra liker (not quite a lover yet). I can't wait to grow even more next year!

What are the pros? Very Prolific

What are the cons? Slightly Itchy.

Review:

First time trying this variety and I'm impressed. Tall, branching, productive. Seem to be resistant to root knot nematodes. Very tasty and far less slime than other varieties I've tried. I'll plant more next year.

Review:

It's a toss up between this and Clemson Spineless. Not as tasty when eaten raw as CS, but great fried and when boiled or steamed it is less slimy. (We haven't tried pickled yet.) Like all okra it loves the Texas heat so far 6' and very bushy. Still growing. It seems to be more robust, and appears to resist the Root Knot Nematode better than CS. So far the only bad thing I've noticed is that the stems and leaves cause my arms to itch after picking in short sleeves.

What are the pros? coloring

What are the cons? too fat for me

Review:

I tried these this year because I live in Texas, they are hardy and productive. I am just not a fan of this fat pod. They are less slimy, but since they are so much bigger you need to harvest soon as they will get big and tough if not. Going back to my clemson spineless next year. not so impressed.
