What are the pros? easy to grow, easy to kep
What are the cons? Grows tall, I'm 5'
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.
