What are the pros? Great Germination rate, early.
What are the cons? None
Bought these seed in early 2018. Soaked in water for a few hours and sowed them in a planter on 4-29-18.
Two days later they had germinated and popped through the soil.
Out of 25-26 seed, 22 germinated.
These I set out in my garden on 5-6 and 5-7.
The first plant began blooming on 6-30 and had a small pod set the next day.
Picked two okra pods off of my Kandahar okra plants on 7-5.
One was 9 1/4 inches and dark green and the other was about 5 inches and light green.
The 22 plants produced abundantly in my well drained clay soil (I mulched around them and used organic fertilizer.)
By 8-15, my tallest plant was 10 feet tall, and several were probably 12 feet by fall.
I had two distinct types in this landrace, one that was about 5-6 feet tall with short stubby pods and another type that was tall with pods that remained tender to a length of 8-9 inches.
I saved seed from the tall type and will plant again in 2019.
I was very pleased with this okra and recommend one try it.
