One of the best varieties we offer. The large, fat pods are very tender and full of good "Okree" flavor that is so popular in the hill regions of the south. The pods are reddish-green in color and the plants have red stems. Very productive and high quality. This beautiful variety is very rare.

What are the pros? Gorgeous, productive, tender

What are the cons? none

Review:

This okra grows into tall beautiful plants, that produce loads of pods. Okra is a heat lover, so really kicks in later in the season, producing in my Missouri garden from July into October. What I find most pleasing about this variety is that even when the pods get quite large, they do not develop the fibrous spines that can make overlarge pods of other varieties most unpleasant. While my original experience with okra is straight Southern-fried, we often also use this okra in gumbo and bhindi bhaji with excellent results. It really does have a wonderful depth of flavor that makes these dishes very special. Our neighbors remark how gorgeous the plants are, with it's yellow hibiscus-like flowers and bright red stalks. This is my go-to variety for the foreseeable future.

Review:

First time growing this okra. It was slow to start but when it got started. It took off. Friends repeatly asked for the "little fat red okra". I will grow them again. The taste was great and the productivity was high.

I loved this variety of red okra. It is one of the fat ones, but it fries up very crispy with wonderful flavor. I will plant this every year!

What are the pros? Amazingly abundant

What are the cons? 30% of pods too woody to eat

Review:

We grew 15 plants last summer and had more okra than we knew what to do with (and we are serious okra eaters). With this years' mild fall and winter in central TX, I only pulled them out of the ground in mid-December and they were still flowering and producing (tho production slowed considerably after the end of October). The stalks were nearly 20 ft tall! They are delicious in stir-fries and soups. The one real complaint we had is that about 30% of the pods were too tough to be edible and it did not depend on size -- ginormous ones might or might not be tender and delicious and the same went for small pods. We had so many we hoped that we could pickle some but even when very small they are too fat to lend themselves to making pickled okra. This year we are growing another 15 for straight fresh eating and trying 24 plants of Harlow's Homestead in hopes of pickling --as much as we can!

Review:

Plants are resistant to root knot nematodes, and topped out at 12 feet high. Plants are still producing a few pods in January 2016! (No frosts yet). We have harvested over 20 pounds this past season.
