This spineless okra produces extra tender, green pods that are round and not ribbed; tasty. Tall, branching plants set heavy yields of this great Louisiana heirloom.

What are the pros? pods stay tender even at 12"

What are the cons? none

Review:

WOW - these OKRA really produced and are very forgiving if you don't pick them right away. I had some 10-12 inch pods which were still tender. Some of my plants got over 8 feet tall. Very easy to grow and hardy. I will grow them again next summer. Here in Florida it's hard to find anything that will grow throughout the HOT humid summer. These did the job

Review:

The is the best okra I've tried in terms of taste and texture. It's "forgiving" of missed picking, as the pods remain tender even when I let them grow larger than ideal. Does not get woody, excellent flavor. I tried for several years to find tender, flavorful okra like my grandparents grew. My search is over. For what it's worth, reviewer from OK mentioned spiney pods. That did not happen to me in central Illinois.

Review:

Ok. This okra is good. Yields are huge. Off of six plants I have frozen several gallon bags of okra and we have eaten more than you can drive by and look at! BUT--Here in central Oklahoma, this is the SPINIEST, ITCHingest okra I have ever picked. I will miss it next year because of the yield, but the spines are not worth it.

Review:

Okra plants are lush and well branched, creating many fruiting tips from which to harvest. The pods are long and thin, I regularly harvest them at 9 inches and find them still very tender. Plants start producing when just 8 inches tall, but I harvest the okra at a much shorter length at that point so the plants don't put too much energy into ripening the pods and get stunted.

Review:

In a trial of 7 varieties made on Long Island, NY in 2011, Zeebest came out ahead in "forgiveness", when I missed a picking or two. Overall productivity was high, exceeded only by Burmese. I found the cow-horn types generally superior to the squat varieties in tenderness. Deer have become a problem locally, but okra seem to lack appeal -after a cursory nibble or two early on.
