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.

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.

Review:

Growing Stewart's Zeebest for the first time this year (2010). Picked a forgotten pod which measured in at 11.5 inches long! This pod was still very tender and tasty at 11.5 inches. Will let all future pods get longer. I'm thinking 7-8 inches for all Stewart's pods. I also grow Emerald and Louisiana Green Velvet because I like smooth round pods. Also grow Cowhorn (not smooth) because I like the flavor and the large pods. I took a photo of this pod with measuring tape in photo but there is no way to post photo with this review.
