Review:

This was amazing! First time we planted it and it was not only delicious, it was a beautiful ornamental in the garden. Great yield. We mixed it with our Clemson spineless and the taste was wonderful.

Review:

Started these indoors, high germination rate, transplanted out in late May. By late June they started producing tasty pods, which by August I couldn't keep up with! We had a very hot dry summer but the plants just soaked it up. These are worth growing as ornamentals alone: red-green foliage, beautiful yellow-white blooms with red throats, dramatic red pods that grow to 8-9" (pick them under 4" to eat.) They'd probably keep producing until frost, but I've pulled them with many mature pods to dry for flower arrangements. Two notes: the seedlings will get what looks like insect eggs on the undersides of the leaves, tiny round clear balls. Don't worry, they are not future pests, but sap the plant produces. Also, the pods lose color when you cook them, and turn green, but if you want okra to pickle, another variety might be better, as these become a pale muddy color in the pickling juice. Still tasty tho!

Review:

I never grow any "normal" varieties so this year decided to try the Jing Okra. Every seed germinated and grew well! I will admit I initially had my doubts because they were very slow to start flowering but when they did WOW what an explosion. They are wonderful producers with outstanding flavor. Even at 6 inches they are tender and no spines. Also what a beautiful plant they make, pretty enough for a flower garden. They have tolerated heat and an unusual abundance of rain this.l summer! Definately recommend and my new favorite!

Review:

Great producer in the Texas summer heat. We plant in May and harvest until November. Nice color and great flavor. I water them every other day when it is hot but they seem to produce better after a nice rain. The pods stay soft even when they are picked late and look too big to be tender.
