What are the pros? They're okay

What are the cons? Unpredictable

Review:

I got this variety because they were said to stay tender longer. While there were some tender long pods there were also plenty that got tough too soon. I had one plant produce nothing but tough pods no matter what size I picked them at (I cut that one down). I didn't need to use gloves to pick them, and my eight plants (from twelve starts) produced enough to use, freeze, and give some away. This was an okay variety, but I'm going to try something else next year.

What are the pros? Taste, pod length

What are the cons? Not very drought tolerant

Review:

I have now grown these in both inland and coastal central FL. They are the best of several varieties I have tried and now the only type I grow. As advertised you can easily grow delicious pods nearly a foot long that are nice raw or cooked. The glory of these plants though is when the pods are about 3 to 4 inches long on the 2nd day after flowering. The taste is sweet and almost floral. They rarely get to mature furthur than this in my garden.

What are the pros? Bountiful and delicious

What are the cons? None

Review:

Planted Fife Creek Cowhorn and Hill Country Red in community garden. First time attempting okra (my favorite vegetable) in Colorado. Both produced well, but the Fife Creek Cowhorn grew tall and thick, and was very productive. In addition the okra was delicious, and we ended up eating most of it raw. I wasn't sure if okra would grow well in the semi-arid high plains of Colorado, but this exceeded my expectations.

What are the pros? great producers

What are the cons? They grow VERY tall

Review:

These were very fast growing and produced a lot. Very tender fruit, even when big, you actually have to make sure you harvest because the pods can grow over 5" a day! The only problem was that they grew VERY tall, over 10' so in the end it gets hard to harvest. They're still producing and it's October.

What are the pros? Lots of fruit

What are the cons? a little too tall

Review:

Not sure if this was due to the soil preparation or watering, but these grew very very all - some plants are nearing 10' tall. Rather hard to harvest with the risk of breaking the whole plant. Otherwise, great producers, yields lots of fruits, resistant to disease and ants. Fruits are delicious and even when over 7-8" long still have no fibers and threads.
