What are the pros? Taste, yield,weather resistant
What are the cons? Spiney
Easy to grow and tasty, this will produce a large yield once mature. Okra tastes best when picked 3 inches or less. Let them get too big you will get a woody harder flavor.. Seeds are easy to save, just let a few okra grow large and dry out on the plant at the end of the season.. Then take out seeds and dry completely before storing in a cool dry place for the cold season. I planted mine directly in the ground (mid May) after soaking the seeds in a wet paper towel for 24 hours or so. Did about 5-10 seeds per spot and kept the ground nice and wet for several days. Thin them out to the strongest plant when they start growing.
Although they are "spineless" my skin still gets irritated so it helps if you choose to wear gloves when harvesting.
