Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars
The okra seeds are not easy to find, but sustainable seed seems to have them available when needed. And they carry the seed because of the okra's history and quality.I have planted this variety a number of times. I couldn't plant mine until the first of June, waiting for the ground to warm to at least, 80degrees. I did start the seeds in my starter kits. This okra can get to be 9 inches and still be tender and of good flavor. Good strong stalk. Hundred times better in flavor and quality than Clemson. I am anticipating the first flowering soon.
Perkins long pod
I loved the Perkins Long Pod...up to 8-9 inches and still tender to cut and cook, easy to maintain, good production, won a 1st place ribbon at the North Georgia State Fair for Okra. I'll never grow Clemson again.
