Stelley Okra

Louisiana variety originally collected in St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, at the heart of Cajun heritage and culture, where it was found growing near an old, abandoned homestead nearly 50 years ago. The plants are fairly compact, reaching 5-6 feet in height, and are super productive! The pods stay tender to 6"-7" in length. Original seed was furnished by our friend, collector Kurt Bridges.

What are the pros? Short plant

What are the cons? Slow germination

Review:

I popped these seeds into my beautiful soil in the spring (too early perhaps) and it took over 2 weeks to see anything. It took so long I ran to my local garden store and picked up another variety of okra seeds and planted these in the same row thinking the Stelley seeds were goners. A day or two later, the Stelley seeds finally germinated, but only a few, but that could be because I moved the soil to plant the new okra seeds. So perhaps germination rate is good, but it takes way too long for comfort to make its appearance. Once the plant was established, I did get some delicious, tender okra, but it wasn't producing like crazy like okra tends to do for me here in California. I heavily mulched my plants this year with a thick covering of fresh oak wood chips to protect against are terrible drought and only had to water one or two times a week. Worked out great that way. Nice sturdy, short plants! These okra were just okay, and I think I'll try another variety this coming season.

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? need step ladder to reach top

Review:

Amazing plants. Didn't come up until April, about a month after i planted. Grew them in wood chips and man did they grow. Forget 5-6 feet in height. My tallest is closer to 12 feet, shortest is at least 8. No fertilizer. I can barely keep up with the production. Freezer bags full of okra. Large pods do stay tender. Perfect for Louisiana gumbo.

What are the pros? Great Producer, Great Taste

What are the cons? No real dislikes after 2 years

Review:

We have been growing this variety for two years and have never been disappointed, even in the hottest, driest summers. They perform in wet or dry weather. But what makes this variety the best is that the pods can get extremely long (upwards of 6 in.) without becoming woody, better than any variety I've ever tried. Heavy producer even at 7 feet tall. Great for drying or freezing and the flavor is wonderful. We have Dried, Frozen and Pickle this variety with great results. We highly recommend this variety.
