What are the pros? Beautiful plant and okra pod.
What are the cons? None
The plants rival any ornamental,and the okra is delicious and tender for several days. It doesn't seem to be as slimy as the other 2 okras that I grew, Clemson Spineless and Louisiana 16. The Red Velvet stand of okra grew to a height of 12-15 feet tall!! It produced at least 20 days earlier. This summer was a very wet summer tho. I would grow it for it's beautiful plant alone.My seed pods are drying on the plant now AND it is still producing okra in mid September! It was extremely easy to grow. The only insects that bothered it were big black ants and very few of them. I will grow it from now on.

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
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!
