Hi all I was wondering if anyone is trying to grow some Giant Okra this year, I have some growing this year from seeds from some that I had last year. So far they are doing great I have two that are especially interesting and should do very well in growing and producing large long pods. I have some others that are showing promiss also, some of the pods last year I let go just to see how long they would get as I had been eating quite a few of the smaller ones, anyway I got several that were over a foot long and bigger around than a half dollor. The height of some of my plants grew to over twelve feet by the end of the season. I normally don't grow my okra for show as I'm trying to develope my own strain, but I can't help on bragging on some of them. the two that I'm watching the most even have huge tropical leaves that are a foot across.
I hope that the seeds that I gave out last year are doing as good as mine are this year and that they will produce some great plants.
