Spineless pods are light green and often reach 6" in length while remaining tender. Compact plants to about 5 feet tall are very well branched, producing plenty of sweet, tender pods. A bit later than some types; very drought tolerant. Throw in resistance to root-knot nematode and you've got a great variety for the Deep South. Recommended!

What are the pros? Ease, flavor, heat tolerance

What are the cons? Ants solved with borax/Terro

Review:

With no soaking of seeds, Gold Coast okra germinated easily for me. Grew super slowly in the winter but quickly as the heat rose. Shaded with 30% cloth and are happy with daily watering in 105 degree heat (might be able to handle every other day). Starting to branch out, and makes one pod per leaf. The first small pod was like wood because it was on a baby plant and stayed on the plant for well over a week, but on a mature plant, the pods ripen quickly and remain tender with good flavor. My bunch of about 10 is closely planted (in about 10 square feet...3x3) with some more mature than others because they get more sun. Eventually, I might have about 10 okra pods per day or even more once they all branch out. As was first time growing okra (or any vegetable), my spacing didn't account for branching; might have to cut off some of the "extra." Lastly, I was initially worried because ants were devouring the pods, but one terro ant bait took care of them in one night (about 3 weeks ago).

Review:

I planted some okra a bit earlier in the garden without soaking the seeds. I noticed that they were growing pretty slowly. Which is fine. Then I ordered another batch and soaked the seed this time. It took literally two days and the sprouts are already taller than the seeds that I didn't soak. I am so impressed. I can't wait for so much okra this season. I love it pickled!

Germinated late January

What are the pros? Germinated late January

What are the cons? None yet

Review:

I'll have to edit my review after they mature, but I want to report that they germinated about 13 days after planting in Phoenix, AZ on January 11, 2018. They get about half a day of sun on my patio in a container. It's only January 24 now--too soon to say more at this point. They still have just one small set of leaves, but they're growing pretty quickly for seedlings!

Review:

I've had mixed results with Clemson Spineless, the old standby. Gold Coast performed great for me. Pods are great raw when small and stay tender to a pretty good size. Huge leaves and, of course, lovely blooms make it quite ornamental. Most of my plants did get higher than 5 feet, several are about 7 feet tall. Root-knot nematode resistance is important down here. However, one unexpected benefit is that the ants didn't seem to bother them nearly as much this year as my previous okra varieties. Am saving seed and will probably buy some new seeds next year to make sure I get plenty next year!

Review:

While I usually plant Clemson and direct seed, I tried this one and started them in paper cups of good soil. Then planted to stand 18" apart in row 5 ft apart. Production is very good. The fruits do not resemble the photos much...being very FAt and ROUND,...the diameter of a quarter at least. Very HEAVY pods but needs picked before 4"/ Flavor is very sweet and good. The plants are very fast growing, robust with thick stems, compact habit and lots of big leaves. Easy to clip with scissors and not prickly. I will try to update at end of season but so far it seems very healthy and is producing well. I would grow it again.
