Beautiful ornamental edible. Grows faster than Clemson spineless and tastes better. Every seed I planted produced in great abundance!

What are the pros? Great producer

Review:

Great producer in the Texas summer heat. We plant in May and harvest until November. Nice color and great flavor. I water them every other day when it is hot but they seem to produce better after a nice rain. The pods stay soft even when they are picked late and look too big to be tender.

Review:

Trialed these with Gold Coast, my usual is Clemson. The Jing germnation was great. Planted in good potting mix in paper cups. Planted out to stand in 5 ft rows, 18" apart. No amendmenst to sugar sand. Watered via hose daily in 95 degree heat, during prolonged drought. They started bearing at about 10". The stems are deep burgundy red. The dark green leaves are mottled with red. next year they will line the back of my flower beds as well. The okras are orange-red and almost glow from within. I tried to get them picked 4" but some went to 6...very fast. Those were just as tender. About the diameter of a nickel. Very good production and easy to pick, no prickles. Been eating it sauteed with onion and bacon or just steamed. It turns green with cooking. very sweet good flavor. In fact, this is now my very favorite okra and I will grow it always. Its the BEST.

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!
