Silver Queen Okra

65 days. Pale green to nearly white cowhorn pods are unusual and striking—the color is almost like the heart of an Iceberg lettuce! Lightly ribbed pods reach 7 inches in length and are great in gumbos and curries; harvest slightly smaller for deep-fried okra. Plants are moderate in size (for an okra) and typically measure 6-7 feet.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, likes heat

What are the cons? none

Review:

Growing container vegetables can be a little tricky in north Texas so I picked okra because it likes the heat and I expected it to do well. I was not disappointed in this variety. I kind of neglected this plant actually but I still got decent yields. I gave leftover seeds to my mother-in-law in Irving and she had even better results in raised beds. In fact she asked me this weekend where I got the seeds so I ordered her some along with some other Baker Creek seeds - maybe I'll convert her to heirloom gardening. The only thing I was a little disappointed in was it took longer than 65 days - more like 90 days - but that might be my lack of watering.

What are the pros? More tender than other okra

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is my first year growing this type of Okra. The pods are almost white & soft looking. This variety seems more tender because the ribs are less evident than other varieties. So it seems more tender almost softer in texture than other varieties. I grilled some last night and pickled a few last week. Will grow this type for sure next year.

What are the pros? most tender, tasty okra

What are the cons? may irritate some skin

Review:

For years I was a fan of Clemson Spineless--that old heirloom favorite. However, it has to be harvested every day or the pods begin to get woody as they enlarge. Silver Queen stays tender for a much of its growth. My only problem is that certain plants (okra and green beans) make me itch if I don't wear long sleeves and gloves when I harvest. Not everyone may have this problem. This is my favorite okra; it freezes well and is super tasty and tender. I sent some seeds to Baker Creek a few years ago; I don't know if that helped get this fine plant listed--but I'm thankful for whatever reason they now carry it.
