From the area around Carrizo Springs and Eagle Pass, Texas. Productive plants are a favorite of the local farmer who grows this variety. A great okra that is less slimy than others; big pods are tender and delicious.

What are the pros? Little Slime, Crunchy.

What are the cons? None

Review:

This okra is FAT! Hands down the best okra I have ever had. Crunchy all the way through. Almost no slime. I eat it raw, straight off the plant. This will be the only okra I grow from now on! Ate them so fast, they never made it into the house. Next year I'm going to try pickling them!

What are the pros? Easy to grow, productive

What are the cons? None

Review:

I had not grown okra before so I didn't know what to expect. One of the reviews further down said they grew 12' tall. I assumed that was a typo and they meant 12". They meant every word of twelve feet. Mine definitely grew that tall. It took two people to harvest the pods late in the season, one to pull the stalk down and the other to harvest the top of the plant. We had more okra than we could eat all summer long off of 2 (just two) plants. They shaded the entire bed, so don't plant anything that needs full sun nearby.

What are the pros? not slimy

What are the cons? Can't find any

Review:

I planted this because we live in Texas so figured it would do good and turns out it is my new favorite. The pods are fatter than what I'm used too but they don't get hard like you would expect (they eventually will like any okra but you can use them at a larger size). The best thing about them is they are not slimy! I love okra but don't like the deep fried battered ones because it's just too greasy so we saut? these in coconut oil and then sprinkle in some corn meal to get that southern fried taste without all the grease. It never once got slimy and cooked up perfect. Oh my, I could just eat it all day. And, the plants are tall and keep going no matter how hot it is. We pick every day. I will be doing this one year after year. Thank you for carrying this one!

What are the pros? Taste and production

What are the cons? Slow Sprouting

Review:

This okra is great once it takes off. It was a little slow sprouting, although that could have been due to a very wet spring, but the wait was worth it. They are short fat and delicious and are going to be in my garden from now on! Highly recommend! It was a crazy year with lots of rain and a cool summer and they still produced up toward the end of October!

What are the pros? Prolific, hardy

What are the cons? It's woody & fibrous

Review:

This variety needs to be picked when pods are only 1-2 inches! If not, they are fibrous, woody and dry.
