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? Flavor, beauty, ease.

What are the cons? The occasional tiny spines.

Review:

My first year to try this. A definite keeper! Germinated okay, grew great. Still growing and producing. A couple are about 7' tall, I will need my step stool to harvest. The flavor is amazing. I usually just saut? it in a bit of unrefined coconut oil, until its a bit caramelized. Sprinkle a bit of salt and cayenne pepper. I've also added fresh tomato, but I really love the flavor best, all on its own. This is also a very striking stand in the garden, hands down the prettiest okra I've seen.. But, just like the others, handle with care, it can stick you. But well worth it!

What are the pros? Big, tender pods

What are the cons? Not as productive as some

Review:

I love this variety. The pods are beautiful and each one I’ve harvested has been extremely tender. I’ve had other varieties get tough much quicker. I haven’t had as many pods with this as other varieties I’ve tried, but these are superior in quality in my view. I’ve got six plants still fairly small (seems to be kind of slow growing) so we’ll see if I get more from them. I would buy again. I love that something grows in the heat of Florida summers.

What are the pros? Easy to Grow and Productive

What are the cons? Gets Woody very Quickly

Review:

This Okra isn't bad, but you have to cut it very small which means you have to stay on top of it all the time. It is not long and slender, it is fat and round. Clemson Spineless eventually gets hard, but it takes a while. This stuff is woody quick. I think there are several better varieties of Okra if having tender okra is important to you. Having said that, this okra is productive.

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.
