Okra, Hill Country Red

This variety will grow well in most regions of the United States but does not tolerate cold well.
Said to originally be from the Hill Country of southern Texas. Beautiful 6' tall red-stemmed plants produce wide green pods tinged with red. Full of the good okra flavor popular in the hill regions of the south. Excellent pickling variety. 60-70 days.

Best tasting okra
Love this okra my family’s favorite
Productive and BEAUTIFUL green and red pods on red stalks.
Beautiful pods with perfect okra flavor. Easy to grow in 5a. Their flowers are, in my opinion, the most beautiful okra flowers.
Hardy and productive, but extremely prickly spines
We've bought the spineless Okra variety in previous years but wanted to branch out this year and try another variant. This grew extremely well and was very productive/hardy, but the okra were extremely prickly and sharp. I had to wear gloves harvesting (cut my hands to bleeding several times without gloves) and the spines were also incredibly difficult to remove even with soaking, scrubbing, and cooking. This led to some prickliness while eating which isn't pleasant at all. Definitely will stick with the spineless variety going forward.
