60 days. Our favorite Okra! Lovely pods are a deep reddish-orange and are quite colorful. This Asian variety produces lots of flavorful 6” -8” pods early, even in dry conditions. An exciting new variety that is unique and beautiful. One of the most tender we offer.

What are the pros? no fuss -takes care of iteself

What are the cons? scratchy leaf hairs

Review:

I planted the seeds directly in un-amended clay soil and they did great. I have to pick at least every other day to keep up. We had a dry July, and a very wet August, but they thrived in the hot/humid environment of south Louisiana. First, I was trying to pick under 4in long, but lost track and had many get 5-8in before I got to them. However, they were not woody at all. Once they get past 8-9in, however, they get a bit tough. The plants are currently about 8ft tall - can be gently bent over to harvest. Wear long sleeves as the hairs on the leaves can irritate sensitive skin. Hairs on the fruit are soft, though. The color does not keep when cooked. I've been using scissors to cut off the top and tip of the okra (discarding), then cutting into 1in pieces. I place the pieces in a gallon bag in the freezer until I have enough to make a big pot of smothered shrimp and okra, or gumbo. The seeds were easy to save - leave a fruit on the plant until it gets dry and woody, then split open.

Review:

Grew great in our hot and unusually dry summer. The blossoms on these plants are beautiful. The pods are a nice size put not tough. I had no problems with germination and will be growing this always in my garden, not only is it tasty but it is also a beautiful plant.

100% germination rate! Everyday I go out and harvest a handful. They turn green when you cook 'em, still delicious though.

Review:

These are easy and fun! I started them indoors under lights and planted them around the garden. They transplanted very well. These okra plants are so beautiful. I wish I had planted more! I have them scattered in my flower beds not really sure what I was going to do with them. To the rescue came the recently published book The Whole Okra by Chris Smith. I'm feeling good about all of this! They are just getting started with their blossoms. So far I have eaten all of them next to the plant but soon some might come inside. Because I started with the idea of using them as an integrated beautiful food they are in many different beds and pots in my yard. Okra has a reputation for growing anywhere but in my multiple locations for this first crop I can really see the differences in fertility in the beds.

What are the pros? color, flavor, novelty

What are the cons? Ocra grows so dang fast...

Review:

I love the red ocra variety! I purchased a seed packet from my local garden store and it has inspired me to try some of the other unique varieties Baker has out there. The flowers are gorgeous and the plants are great producers. It has been a great gift to friends who've never knew Ocra could be red!
