Fast little plants
Cindy from SC wrote on April 08, 2020

I soaked my seeds for 24 hrs and they started putting out little roots in the water! I quickly planted them in my seeds tray and they took off. They are so big now I'm gonna have to get them in the ground quickly. All this in just a few days! Now I'm planting them in self wicking 5 gallon buckets to avoid the damn nematodes and fire ants that have invaded my whole yard. I hope it works. Wish me luck!

Fertilize and pick, pick, pick.
Bob in Bryson City from NC wrote on October 19, 2018

On May 20 I tilled in 2 lbs 17-17-17 and 1.2 lbs 0-45-0 into a 20-in wide bed and planted 2 40-ft rows 12-in apart with 2 seeds each spot on staggered 16-in centers. Thinned to about 60 plants and picked first okra July 13. Huge yields all summer. Plants reached 6 to 10 ft tall. Yes, 10-ft. Cut last okra Oct 18. Cool temps in zone 6-B at 2000-ft ended the season. Best okra variety I've ever grown. Eats, pickles and freezes good too.

Results from first test plot of all 6 varieties from Park Seed
Dave from FL wrote on August 10, 2017

This is my third year growing okra, but the first year I have tested all these varieties (in order of best productivity to worst at the 70 day mark) : Candlestick, Bulldog, Clemson Spineless, Jambalaya, Silver Queen, and Star of David. ***Clemson Spineless, its less stickery, but the spines on my other plants don't seem to bother me, so I can't really give it extra points just for that. It has been my third best producer this year. I've grown this one before and it is consistent for me. Other than that I don't have a lot to say about it. Its a pretty solid okra in my experience. *** I do not claim to be a master gardener, and these are only my results and methods. I planted 10 of each variety, 3 feet apart in rows that are 8 feet apart so that I could mow in between rows. I used a chicken manure based, organic fertilizer mixed with bagged topsoil and my native clay and humped up the rows under weed barrier with a drip system to get them started. I have not fertilized further. I have only used neem oil and BT for insecticides and I hand pick caterpillars, stink bugs and grasshoppers as often as I can. I haven't had major deer problems, though the deer have ready access to the entire plot. I use scissors to cut of the pods as close to the trunk as possible. I also cut off bottom leaves which have yellowed from bug damage and pull the wilted flowers off the emerging pods since they are a gooey mess – I think that’s from the extreme humidity here and that seems to help the pods mature a little quicker, but that’s just something I’ve been trying for the first time this year. I will review each of the 6 varieties. The second paragraph will be specific to the variety, the rest will just be the same ol' mumbo gumbo you just read ;) I sure do love gumbo, which is the whole reason I did this at all.

Good experience

I can remember my mother poring over their catalog when I was a child. This shopping experience tells me why she enjoyed getting their catalog each year.
