What are the pros? Prolific, Can't be killed
What are the cons? Not spineless
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.
