70 days. Stems and pods are a deep, rich burgundy to scarlet. Pretty enough for the flower beds, and a stunning choice for edible landscaping. Plants top out at about 4 to 5 feet. The pods are slightly ribbed or fluted; tender and delicious harvested at 3-5 inches in length.

Review:

I live near Austin TX. I wanted a tasty okra. This red okra appealed to me. I placed seeds in a jar on top of a heat mat in order to germinate. I planted out mid-April. They started to produce well in the beginning of June. This okra is not only ornamental but also very tasty. I make an excellent curry from the okra which everyone loves. They even want to eat it as a midnight snack!

Review:

Beautiful and productive, makes for a great ornamental with smaller flowers/edibles under it. Pods were very flavorful when picked early (4-6 inches long). However, these grew to 10-12 FEET tall, almost up to the ridgeline of the garage! It was a 1st yr. garden in a new location, barely any compost needed (and no fertilizer added), and standard rainfall. Fun but not what I expected form the "tops at 4-5 feet' on the back of the packet. Will save some seed to see if it does it again. :)
