**I LOVE plants that can be neglected and still thrive well!**
**GROWN ON OUR FARM HERE IN TENNESSEE**
PhotoThis heirloom okra dates back to around the civil war.
It has a twisted shape that resembles a cows horn.
These large pods can reach 14" and still stay crunchy, meaty and flavorful.
Cow's horn still has that true okra flavor that has been bred out of many okra.
This is the reason heirlooms are so popular these days.
People are tired of tasteless food.
Best picked when 6-7" for fried okra. Longer pods are perfect for gumbo.
55 days. Abelmoschus esculentus. Plant produces high yields of 14" long green okra.
The large pods remain spineless and tender up to 10" long! Excellent for making gumbo. This heirloom variety dates back to pre-1865. A great variety for market growers. Plant Height: 8 ft tall.
