What are the pros? Nice production
What are the cons? None
This is anything but a compact plant. By end of season, mine was 14'2". It has great okra flavor and produced very well for me. I'm anxiously awaiting this year's seeds to pop up.

What are the pros? Stays tender longer
What are the cons? Not quite as tasty as others
I was worried that these were taking a bit to sprout and grow during our cool, wet early summer, but once it got warmer they really took off. The pods stayed tender even at 6-9 inches long, though they will get tough quicker when the weather is hotter. Thinner pod walls and flavor not quite as good as the Cajun Jewel okra I also grew, but Stelley beat the pants off of Cajun Jewel production-wise. 3 plants have produced 3 gallon freezer bags, and still going strong in September. Plants are currently about 8-9 feet high, would not consider this a compact plant!

What are the pros? Short plant
What are the cons? Slow germination
I popped these seeds into my beautiful soil in the spring (too early perhaps) and it took over 2 weeks to see anything. It took so long I ran to my local garden store and picked up another variety of okra seeds and planted these in the same row thinking the Stelley seeds were goners. A day or two later, the Stelley seeds finally germinated, but only a few, but that could be because I moved the soil to plant the new okra seeds. So perhaps germination rate is good, but it takes way too long for comfort to make its appearance. Once the plant was established, I did get some delicious, tender okra, but it wasn't producing like crazy like okra tends to do for me here in California. I heavily mulched my plants this year with a thick covering of fresh oak wood chips to protect against are terrible drought and only had to water one or two times a week. Worked out great that way. Nice sturdy, short plants! These okra were just okay, and I think I'll try another variety this coming season.

What are the pros? easy to grow
What are the cons? need step ladder to reach top
Amazing plants. Didn't come up until April, about a month after i planted. Grew them in wood chips and man did they grow. Forget 5-6 feet in height. My tallest is closer to 12 feet, shortest is at least 8. No fertilizer. I can barely keep up with the production. Freezer bags full of okra. Large pods do stay tender. Perfect for Louisiana gumbo.

What are the pros? Tastes great, grows well
What are the cons? No dislikes
We grew this okra last year and it did great! Ours grew to be 12' tall and produced a lot of okra even though we had a hot summer.
