Edna Slaton's Candelabra Okra

Graceful, branching plants, reaching shoulder height, give great yields of 12-inch cowhorn-type pods, which remain tender even after reaching a large size! The prickly pods are a pretty, pale green. Performed well in the hot and dry conditions of summer 2011, when others failed. Originated in Georgia.

What are the pros? Tastes great, a real survivor

What are the cons? Nothing at all!

Review:

I'm into veggies and varieties that can thrive in the dry climate of Southwestern Idaho, where the summer heat can now come in triple digits, the temperature spread between day and night is getting wider, and the seasonal changes are becoming increasingly rapid and unpredictable. Edna Slaton was my first foray into okra and I think I hit a home run. I started with 2-year-old seeds and the nursery that grew them out for me did a rather poor job, so I had only five puny sprouts to put into the raised bed with the sweet potatoes, peppers and beans. Their initial startup was slow, but boy, when these plants got going, they really went to town! They both soaked up the heat and shook off weeks of daytime temps varying from the low 60's to the low 90's with nighttime temps in the low 40's - 50's. The pods are prolific, tender, delicious, and HUGE if left to go to seed. Edna has won my heart and I anticipate she will be THE okra for me.

Review:

If you're somewhat bad at gardening like I am, try this variety. It's practically idiot-proof. I planted the seeds in march during the coldest, wettest spring my area has ever seen. Three straight months of rain. These were the only seeds to sprout. Then I got injured and quit weeding my garden for nearly two months.The weeds quickly outgrew the okra, but this stuff is tough. It survived flooding, sixty degree temps, weed forests, aphid infestations, and intense neglect. When the weather warmed up, it took off with a vengeance. Despite continuing to fight off aphids and white flies, and despite the fact that I almost never water it, the plants are more than five feet tall and producing shoots like crazy. These pods stay tender up to a pretty good size.Toughness becomes about fifty fifty up to 12 inches, but some this size are still edible. Okra has a nice, smooth, almost buttery taste. Will definitely grow more next year.

Review:

Grew the best of 3 varieties in our Central Valley drought conditions. Great tasting, and it's still good when it grows longer than other varieties. It even tastes good raw. We will grow this from now on & skip the other varieties.

Review:

This okra kept producing in drought heat, the plant grew so tall and was heavy with large long pods when I was out of town ,that it fell over and after picking and cutting off the stalks that fell,it came back and grew shoots and kept producing tender long pods till into late October,I had nice 14" light green star shaped okra. I saved seed for next spring.
