It was a AAS winner in 1988 and now one of the most popular okra's available. This stunning variety gets to 4 feet tall with burgundy accents with tender burgundy pods that get up to 6 inches long. This verity does well in the upper north east in higher elevations. Tolerates cold better then most varieties. Very good producer and easy to grow! We found it really good in stir fry dishes.

GERMINATION INFOPlanting and Harvesting Tips:
Start indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost of spring. Transplant outside after the soil has warmed to 65˚ to 75˚F. Sow one inch deep and space 12-18 inches apart in rows 3-4 feet apart. Plants prefer full sun and moist soil with plenty of organic matter.
Harvest daily with a sharp knife during hot weather — pods taste best when young and grow quickly past the stage of prime eating. Wear gloves and long sleeves for protection from spines. Green Thumb TipSow seeds outdoors when the soil has warmed. Tolerant of heat and drought, but not of cold. Keep well picked for higher yields.DIRECT SEED 2" ApartSEED DEPTH 1/2"THIN 6-8" Apart LIGHT Full Sun
