Okra, Louisiana 16 Inch Long Pod

92% of 100

60-65 days. You can eat the pods of this truly impressive heirloom okra from Louisiana until they reach around 10 inches long, which is about 2 times as long as most okra varieties! Seasoned okra growers know how easy it is to miss a day of picking and find your plant covered in pods that are too tough to eat. With this variety, though, pods stay tender a little longer. The pale green pods are superbly tasty and tender. Plants are rugged and sturdy.
