My favorite okra so far

What are the pros? Not as fibrous as most

What are the cons? None really

Review:

My favorite of 7 varieties I have tried. Many need picking daily, or they get fibrous, but I even went 3 days a few times, with 8 inch okra, and these were not too fibrous, while the other variety next to it was inedible. And most grow one stalk, which I eventually have to snip, when it gets too tall (and I can reach over 7'!), and it takes a while for them to branch out. These branch out on their own early on, and one got 7 stalks on it, with incredible production as a result! Also spineless, which I always look for, and good flavor. I'll still try others next to them, to compare, but the majority of my plants will be Emerald, from now on.

Review:

I have planted okra 3 years now. I'm new to growing it and new to eating it. Trying to expand our horizons. The problem is - the first year it grew about 3 foot tall, the second about 7-8 foot and the third 3 foot. Now I'm probably doing something wrong, but I have no idea. The taste is great, the seeds are dependable - but the little plants just can't produce as much as the big ones. With the dramatically different size ii can't tell how many plants we'll need.

Review:

This okra is a little smaller than the Burgundy I grew beside it (probably only 6 ft). The pods are a green and not as woody as the other variety. Froze well.

Review:

Maybe leave off the milk bath, slice and dice, and try it southern fried! We planted one pound of this okra in 2011 and had okra until cold weather; avg two 5-gal buckets + every other day in a heavy drought.
