What are the pros? Hardy, grows like a weed,tasty

What are the cons? None

Review:

This okra grew all summer and into winter! Even after I transplanted all the plants so the garden could be tilled for fall, it kept growing! I moved them because they were so pretty and I hated to kill them. Basically placing them anywhere in the yard although it was Aug/Sept, they kept growing! I regularly clipped old stems like I do my tomatoes with excellent results!

What are the pros? prolific, easy

What are the cons? nothing unusual

Review:

I did have to reseed Jing in a few spots, where the first planting did not take. That was no big deal, that happens when I direct seed my okra. The plants were healthy, and a little over 51/2 feet tall here. I enjoyed my daily visits into the okra to pick the 'treasures' for my family, even though it was a bit of an itchy adventure. The only insect pest that bothered Jing in the fall was the 'stink bugs'. Pluck and squish morning and evening helped with those nasty bugs. I harvested plenty of lovely red/orange okra. My family loved the flavor, while I dislike okra, (ewe slime!) even I liked it baked, and it was great dried with a little salt. Overall, Jing Orange Okra did super for me, even in my poor excuse for soil. I will grow it again. ;)

What are the pros? beautiful orange color

What are the cons? small plant not productive

Review:

I was enticed by the beautiful orange color but this plant is just not suited to the PA climate. Although I've grown hybrid dwarf okra with relative success in pots, I could not get this variety to grow well in the ground. Germination was not a problem, but the plants never got more than 18 inches high with a few scraggly leaves. They still bore the occasional 1 or 2 fruits, but between the 8 plants I had going, it was never enough at one time to cook with.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Didn't root too strongly

Review:

These seem to be really great. The first okra I managed to get to sprout. They grow relatively quickly, helping me to get in a late, fall crop. They haven't started producing yet, but I can see after a month, that they are starting to put off tiny buds for flowers and hopefully fruit. They are fairly resilient, but a heavy wind nearly uprooted my 8" tall plants. Will update when fruit is put off.

What are the pros? Red Veined Leaves. Okra Color.

What are the cons? Took a long time to germinate.

Review:

Direct sowed. As noted in dislikes I thought none were going to germinate. Once they got going they were beautiful to look at, especially the leaves and flowers. Here in Northern New Jersey, it took a while for the okra itself to get going, but once it did it has kept going. I am on my third picking of okra from these plants. Not sure how long they will keep producing. It's near the end of September and new leaves and okra are still appearing. Will certainly plant again next year.
