What are the pros? Easy to harvest, fragrant
What are the cons? Taller than anticipated
My toddler, baby, husband, and I are all okra lovers. We planted every seed after soaking and had about 90% germination - resulting in a forest of okra for the little ones' imagination. The ease of harvest is perfect since they are so much taller than I am. I can gently bend the plants over and pop them off. Spines aren't too bad. This is my first time growing okra since childhood. I didn't realize the pods smelled so floral! Such a joy! We pick them no longer than 4 inches and cook them either halved or whole in a little oil, salt, and pepper in a hot cast iron. Delicious! I'd share with my neighbors more, but my little ones can hardly get enough. We didn't get seed in until June so next year we look forward to even more joy!
