69109 - Burmese
58 days. [Heirloom okra from Burma sent by grower Hap Heilman. Now a favorite in some local restaurants.] Bears when plants are 18” tall and continues to bear until frost. The leaves are huge, typically 16” across. Slightly curved, virtually spineless pods range from 9-12” long. Pods mature from light green to creamy yellow-green. At 10” long they are tender, sweet, and spineless enough to be eaten raw or added to salads. Pods are less gooey than other okra, a quality that gives this variety a greater appeal.
