What are the pros? Tastes great, a real survivor
What are the cons? Nothing at all!
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.
