Best and most beautiful okra
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? This is a must for okra lovers

What are the cons? None

Review:

I have grown this for years and can’t say enough about how great this variety is. I garden in raised beds and with just 8 plants I get way more than I can eat (and I LOVE okra). Prolific, low maintenance, does well in raised beds, pods are so tender even when they get a bit long. Best of all, they are so beautiful in our hot Texas gardens. Strikingly beautiful emerald green and deep burgundy, with stunning creamy yellow flower that quickly give way to long slender burgundy pods that the hummingbirds seem to love. Even if the pods weren’t so delicious, I would grow them just for their beauty. They are also a great shade producer so I underplant eggplants and basils to prevent sunburns, it makes a really pretty bed.

What are the pros? Beauty

What are the cons? Plants need support

Review:

One of my favorite vegetables to grow, because they are so beautiful. The burgundy color is not only in the fruits, the leaves and flowers too are darker than other varieties. I planted these together with Silver Queen, but Burgundy grew faster, and started to produce faster. They were also less vulnerable for pests than Silver Queen. I liked to eat the fruits raw. Eventually the plants became too high (6 feet) and needed support.

Great okra

What are the pros? Stays Tender, Heat Resistant

What are the cons? Sometimes falls over

Review:

Great okra, withstands TX heat better than most. Stays tender to about 5", much longer than Clemson Spineless. Sometimes the plants fall over, but I don't know if all okra does that. . . . .?

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!
