Here is the Emerald Green Okra, PI 675122, Abelmoschus esculentus. It is also know as the Emerald Green Velvet Okra. This variety was created by the Campbell Soup Company in the 1950's. It produces large yields of thick walled, tender, and spineless 5 to 8 inch dark green fruits that stay soft and edible much longer then other verities. Plants grow to about 2 to 5 feet tall with leave that get to 9 inches wide! This variety also does quite well in northern climates where other are much more sensitive to cooler weather. It is always best to harvest when pods are young and crispy. one of our best sellers and widely used by southern gardeners who have made okra a staple of their cooking. We find this variety great for eating raw but also good for pickling. Open pollinated 45 to 60 days.
