A delicious heirloom from Alabama, this variety has fat, red-tinged pods that are great fried or in gumbo! One of our most popular varieties, it is unique and rare.

What are the pros? It grows well , large pods

What are the cons? SPINES, Itching, burning

Review:

I will never grow this okra again. This is my first experience with any okra other than Clemson spineless and I learned the hard way that these have very sharp spines. They will stick you and it hurts. It also caused red itching and an intense burning on my skin. I ended up pulling it all out.

What are the pros? Large tender pods

What are the cons? Yes, the prickles sting!

Review:

This okra out produced Clemson Spineless and grew to over 18 ft tall! The pods were still very tender even when large (not so at end of season with cooler nights). The plants were absolutely gorgeous and withstood heavy winds, etc and continued to grow and produce. Love this and will grow it every year!

What are the pros? low maintenance

What are the cons? needs to be picked early

Review:

I really enjoyed growing Alabama Red Okra in my garden last year. Honestly, it's the only okra I have ever grown, so I can't rate it against other okra. The stalks produced many beautiful flowers and pods. I would recommend picking them early to avoid woody pods and wear gloves while harvesting to protect yourself from the prickly stems. The pods that I left to dry on the stalks kept their deep, red color. I'll definitely plant them again for my upcoming garden and see what new recipes I can use them in.

Can't say enough good things about this okra. It has never been woody...never in the many crops of it grown. Alabama Red is a staple in my house.

What are the pros? Grew Great in Bama, HUGE pods

What are the cons? Very woody, Prickers!!!

Review:

I LOVE Okra. Its a summer staple that I plant every year. I am not new to okra. I usually plant Cowhorn, Perkins and Burgundy. I decided to try my states namesake Okra for 2015. I bought two packs to put one away and one to use. This Okra Grew fast and tall. Well over my 5'8" head. It put on tons of very tasty pods. It even withstood my geese attacking its base a few times. I was greatly disappointed, for two reasons. First, It was VERY woody. Unless you picked it very very tiny it was inedible. Pick tiny and often. The problem here is you have to pick it so small for it to be tender its basically useless. Second, the prickers. All Okra is sticky and will make you itch. I am use to picking okra. This stuff is like needles and got under my thumb and index finger skin. Caused swelling and pain for weeks. It became such a hassle to pick it I ripped it all out and burned it. I even shipped my reserved seeds to a friend and I absolutely hated touching this plant. I Love Bakers Creek!
