60 days Lovely pods are a deep reddish orange and are quite colorful. This Asian variety produces lots of flavorful 6" pods early, even in dry conditions. An exciting new variety that is unique and beautiful.

What are the pros? Gorgeous color and nice taste

What are the cons? Slow germination and low yield

Review:

I was interested in trying a different variety of Okra that differed from what I traditionally grew, and more specifically, I was excited about the color which could mean more flavonoids. The seeds did not germinate at the rate of the other Okra variety I grew: Clemson Spineless. The plant were gorgeous to look at, and very ornamental, yet they did not produce a heavy yield. I saved seeds for this year and god-willing I will have a more abundant crop this year.

Review:

At first I was a little concerned about this one. It was truly the most beautiful plant in my garden last year. The leaves were larger than plates, mind you it was container grown. The color contrast on the leaves were great too. they did take a while to start producing for me, but when they produced, did they produce! The flowers were larger than any other okra flower and I was picking every single day. long, tender, richly colored fruit. Don not leave longer than three days on the plant! They grow incredibly quickly. We cooked them on the grill and all they needed was a sprinkle of salt and olive oil. Best french fry alternative to any burger!

What are the pros? Great taste, not woody

What are the cons? None

Review:

Great germination rate. Beautiful plant that just keeps producing. These produced well in amended GA clay, raised beds and even containers. One plant knocked to the ground by my son kept growing sideways and still produced well. These okra can be enjoyed even when a bit larger, as they don't get woody until much larger than a Clemson Spineless. Great grilled, picked or raw. My 4 yo eats them right off the plant. Some plants started late in June are still producing in late October! No spine issues.

What are the pros? Excellent taste

What are the cons? Sparce leaves w. maturity

Review:

Excellent flavor, no spines. Stays productive if picked but loses productivity fast if you let too many pods go to seed. Beautiful plant, very easy to see pods for picking. Never got spiny. We trialed 5 varieties from BakerCreek this year based on their reviews (Zeebest, Hill Country, Burmese, Bucks Big Horn and Jing Orange) and this one was the hands down winner. Most the thinner types got spiny with time and easy to miss pods til too large. The fat types had poor production and got woody too fast. The leaves on Jing Orange get much narrower as the summer progresses which likely hurts it's ability to feed new pods. Otherwise this is a great variety. Keep it well picked and it is very productive! This is the only one we kept pure seed back for next year. I did cross a few pods of Hill Country and Jing Orange to shoot for better leaves and fatter pods on JO. We feed the leaves to tortoises so need good leaf production as well as pods. : )

Review:

I can't address how these cook up - they never made it into the kitchen last year. I would pick and eat them raw, as I worked in the garden - every day. Never tired of them. Doubled the number of plants this year, so maybe I will try cooking some. Or maybe there will be a larger feast in the garden! I grew them in 5 gallon buckets and fertilized regularly. They got through our non-stop May rains last year, and produced well until frost, looking like small trees. This year's young crop has been hit by two awful hail storms; I lost two plants, and the others were terribly damaged. It's taken a bit for them to recover, but they now have and are going strong and are starting to produce again. Can't wait for all of them to be producing regularly! I intend to grow this variety every year.
