What are the pros? Tasty. Plentiful.

What are the cons? Too tall in Earth Box

Review:

Good eatin'. Size too tall for my preference. Mine grew ~ 10' tall and the root system was larger than shorter varieties, thus it stressed the Earth Box by stretching it's width. Also kept blowing over in the breeze. I recommend it for in ground garden -- not for containers.

Review:

I grew this a couple of yrs ago. My plants got easily to 10-15' high! course I watered and babied them! Excellent taste and beautiful plants. I had to wait til the next spring to dig up the "trunks" of the plants b/c they grow big like tree trunks! Saved seed of the last picking; dried and planted. Want some fresh seed this yr...great okra plant! Unusual and tasty...

Review:

We have been growing this for a while now and can't say enough good about it. It's not as slimy as others, awesome for batter fried because it's much wider and has almost a nutty taste! We give extra to the church and they all beg for more. A must try for anyone who loves Okra!

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.
