What are the pros? Easy to grow
What are the cons? Need to pick every other day.
Grew this one in 6 gallon pots with compost mixed with sand. Productive for past 3 months. My wife favors it for flavor. Tallest plants were 7 feet. Water ever other day and add some fertilizer every few weeks. Need to pick often because it grows fast. Let some pods go to seed for next crop.

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!!!
What are the pros? Low watering needs
What are the cons? none
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. :)
