What are the pros? Did well in my climate

What are the cons? Late maturity of seed

Review:

I bought 20 varieties of Okra this year from Baker Creek with the goal of doing a grow-out competition to see which varieties would do best in California (not really the ideal climate for okra). I do minimal to no tillage and no addition of manure, so plants have to be strong to do well. At the end of the season, my biggest, strongest plant was Burgundy. Produced pods consistently, good mold/mildew resistance, and withstood a severe aphid infestation that affected other okra varieties a lot more. Very good disease resistance. A bit taller but has thick, strong stems. Withstood Santa Ana winds no problem! Seed takes a while to mature, and the plant is currently bent towards the ground due to the weight of 6 huge seedpods ripening at once! Strongest grower of all my plants this year. This definitely gets grown again!

What are the pros? Easy to grow - produces well

What are the cons? Scratches and leaves rash

Review:

Once I got the Okra to come up ( I think this was an issue with the heat) it grew, but didn't product Okra. We started to get a lot of rain around August and the plants went crazy. It doesn't product as many pods as my Clemson spineless, but if I forget to pick it for a few days it will still be tender with larger pods. Flavor is good - it's less slimy then Clemsons. I really enjoy the red pods and color that it brings to the garden. Will defin be planting again! Still producing in Oct!

What are the pros? easy to grow, easy to kep

What are the cons? Grows tall, I'm 5'

Review:

This beautiful plant and its fruit were a hit with us and our friends at the farmers' market. The blooms were so breathtaking I would photograph them regularly. Japanese beetles were moderate but didn't slow these down a bit. Very easy keeper and didn't need any help with pests or really much fertilizer (I was busy and maybe didn't fertilize but once). Be vigilant and do harvest pods early as they can get very big, seem pliable but end up being very stringy and tough. Usually I will pinch okra to determine if it's past its prime but don't rely on that with this type.

Good okra some trouble

What are the pros? tender, color, taste

What are the cons? some trouble growing

Review:

I like this okra, and it is as ornamental as it is edible, but I had some trouble growing it. Might have been the drought and the late start. Okra does well in heat, but if it is too small when it runs into an extreme Alabama summer, then it might not do too well. Clemson spineless did very well here but this didn't.

In 2014 I grew a plot of Burgundy Okra as I like to try rare seeds. These according to my customers, were very good and desirable.
