What are the pros? Large pods, 100% Germination
What are the cons? Spines, lower yeild
Last year, I grew 2 Clemson Spineless Okra plants in a pot. Curious to try this I picked Eagle Pass and the Egyptian Okra. Both have grown well in the humid wet summer we have had in Georgia. This variety has a lower yield than the Clemson Spineless and the Egyptian. The pods are short, fat, and easily turn woody if neglected. Plants are very stout. I had 100% germination with this variety. Nice plant, but will likely try another variety next year, I plan on keeping the Egyptian Okra. As a cooking tip: if you fry, slice thinly, (thinner than normal okra) so it cooks evenly.
