Fat pods are very tender and full of good “Okree” flavor that is so popular in the hill regions of eastern Texas. The pods are reddish green in color, and the plants have red stems, very productive and high quality.

Review:

One of the most prolific okras I've grown with about 5-10 pods per week per plant (more at the height of summer, fewer when cooler). Four plants were plenty for 2 okra-liking people. The plants grew to be over 9 feet tall. I planted on May 1 in Austin (zone 9a) and pulled them mid November because I needed the space. Liked this one better than Clemson Spineless, Jade, and Big Buck Horn. Note that the name can be a little misleading. These aren't a truly red okra; most of the pods just have a blush of red and some pods will be entirely green. The plants are pretty with red stems, large leaves, and pinkish flowers. Good okra flavor and less slimy than some varieties. Pods are tender yet firm. Best when picked about 2 to 3" long. Delicious grilled whole or roasted. Easiest way to freeze them is to "blanch" without water so they don't get slimy: slice into coins, put them in a baking dish, cover, and microwave for about 3 mins or 350 F oven for 12 mins. Transfer to plate to cool. Freeze.

What are the pros? Tons of pods, Pretty flowers

What are the cons? None

Review:

We planted 4 of these plants and were giving away okra all summer and fall. The flavor of this okra is fantastic and it freezes well for stews. We roasted it and pan fried it - it worked great in a number of ways. I don't know how convenient it would be to pickle, as the pods are stouter than many other varieties of okra...not a problem - this one's a keeper!

First time growing okra, my mom wanted some okra so I picked this kind for the red color, they are beatyful and grew fast and produced pods fast, they are about a foot and one half and they are full of pods. Will keep growing this kind.

Love this OKRA

What are the pros? Gorgeous, productive, tender

What are the cons? none

Review:

This okra grows into tall beautiful plants, that produce loads of pods. Okra is a heat lover, so really kicks in later in the season, producing in my Missouri garden from July into October. What I find most pleasing about this variety is that even when the pods get quite large, they do not develop the fibrous spines that can make overlarge pods of other varieties most unpleasant. While my original experience with okra is straight Southern-fried, we often also use this okra in gumbo and bhindi bhaji with excellent results. It really does have a wonderful depth of flavor that makes these dishes very special. Our neighbors remark how gorgeous the plants are, with it's yellow hibiscus-like flowers and bright red stalks. This is my go-to variety for the foreseeable future.

First time growing this okra. It was slow to start but when it got started. It took off. Friends repeatly asked for the "little fat red okra". I will grow them again. The taste was great and the productivity was high.
