Review:

Grown on Long Island, NY last year, this proved to be a late-bearing giant of a plant, 8 feet tall with strong woody trunks. Visitors were suitably impressed, amazed even, with this as a back-drop to my planting. The squat pods had to be picked early for tenderness (Eagle Pass was similar). Even then, the prominent ribs gave a distinct chew that you may like or not. Perhaps okra growers are divided into cow-horn and squat-pod camps. I won't be growing this in 2012.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? No
