Old-fashioned flavor.

Texas heirloom grows to 6' tall, produces pods until frost as long as you keep harvesting. Fat pods stay tender to 6" length. It's beautiful with red-orange coloring and showy flowers. Give this one a try to experience the good old-fashioned okra flavor that many okra-lovers prefer.

Continues to produce as long as you keep harvesting as they mature. Large, fat pods made frying okra in a pan an easier task. Even when large, they retain their tender texture.
