The best eating
Meg the Dog from SC wrote on October 06, 2017

I planted Candle Fire, Silver Queen, Bull Dog, Clemson spineless, and Star of David this year. The Star of David took longer to germinate than the other varieties but when it came on it took over the garden. I have given away a lot of okra to friends and they gave it to their friends and of all of it every one wanted to know what variety the big one was because they said it was the best okra they ever had. They all wanted to know where to get some seeds for next year. I will be growing the 3 that did the best for me and they are Candle Fire which produced a lot then Star of David of which I have picked about 30 lbs per plant and still going and last the Silver Queen which did much better than the Bull Dog or the Clemson

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. ***This plant is much taller than all the others and the pod is unique. The description says harvest at 70 days, which I am now at, but this has given me the worst yield of all 6 varieties. Just a little worse than Silver Queen, but definitely worse. Maybe it will pick up soon, so I'll give it a 3 as an optimist. I wouldn't grow it again personally. Its neat in that the plant gets so big I guess, but I wouldn't call it "ornamental" really.*** 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.
