What are the pros? gorgeous plant
What are the cons? taller than expected
Beautiful plant! Mine also grew to over 10'. It was not as productive as I had hoped. My soil nutrients must have been off. I would grow this for the looks alone if I had more room. :-)

What are the pros? Low maintenance,abundant crops
What are the cons? None
I was looking for a delicious variety of okra that would also look great as an ornamental & I'm so happy I went with the Red Velvet!!! It was very easy to grow, fast germination, very low maintenance, & produced lots of great Delicious Okra. Highly recommend this beauty!!!

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!

What are the pros? pretty and easy to grow
What are the cons? n/a
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. :)
