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.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Extremely fiberous

Review:

I was very excited to see how well these okra were doing when I started growing them, having never successfully growing okra, but when I harvested I was very disappointed by the fruits. Most all of the 8 plants I grew had very fibrous fruits, so much so that almost none were worth eating.

Review:

I've been growing regular old Clemson Spineless for years and decided I wanted to try something different this year. This cultivar grew really well in my garden. In fact, they are still growing and are every bit of 5 feet tall right now. The pods are huge and get big and woody really fast. When it sets a pod, the pod is short and fat. If you dont pick them really early, they get woody very fast. If you can catch them early enough, they arent bad. The problem is, "early enough" and they are only about an inch long. Not much meat there. If you blink, they'll be 6" long and probably 2" in diameter. At that point you might as well feed them to the chickens because they are going to taste like chewing on an oak branch... It was a fun experiment, but I dont think I will grow this cultivar again.

What are the pros? Nice big thick pods

What are the cons? Prickly

Review:

We have about 5 plants growing now and they produce probably 6-10 pods a week in July, planted in early April. The pods can be picked anytime until they are about 5 inches long and are still good. The flavor is mild and nice. In my view preferable to the standard green okra. The pods produce good fried okra. I will grow these again. They are very pretty plants and pods.

What are the pros? Not woody

What are the cons? Terrible allergy to spines

Review:

The perfect choice for hot dry Hill Country in Texas. I have maybe a dozen going right now, and I am literally giving away okra. It can wait a full week between picking WITHOUT GETTING WOODY. I have tried a lot of varieties, and this is the first that doesn't go woody in a week. I like this variety so much, that I am buying seeds for all my friends, and starting a second planting for late summer. This is the third or fourth variety I've tried here. I'll stick to this one. And proselytize to my fellow Hill Country Texans.
