Growing up my grandfather and dad always grew okra. The only okra they planted was longhorn. This year we decided to plant some and planted 3 varieties. Well we thought we plant 3 but 4 different varieties came up. We planted Cowhirn, Cajun Jewel and Jambalaya. Not sure what one row is but it makes an okra that looks like the longhorn dad would plant. The Cajun jewel makes an okra about 4-6" long and big around. The jambalaya make one about 6-8"long. [Linked Image]
From left to right is the unknown variety, middle is the Cajun jewel and right is the jambalaya. If you really don't like cutting lots of okra don't plant the jewels and jambalaya. rofl

In my experience the bigger okra isn't as good
But dang it that Jewel looks fine!

My okra never really makes it to the kitchen. The cherry tomatoes and okra make a great garden supper.


It be's that way sometimes.

No trying to hijack the post but I have a question about growing okra. My wife and our 3 year old son grew a garden for the first time this year and they both really enjoyed it especially him because he loved picking the okra and squash. The first couple batches that they picked I noticed that some of the skin on the okra was really tough almost to the point that it was hard to chew. I figured that it was due to her picking it too late so the next time she picked it a little sooner before it got so big and it still didn't make a difference. Some of it was really tender while the other was kinda tough and it wasn't really any particular size that was tough it was pretty random. Is this due to the amount of water or fertilizer that it gets or is it something else? Not sure what type of okra we have but it looks the same as the one on the far right in marshmud991 first picture.

Only eat it fried. And try the pick it no bigger than my thumb. Got one I planted early and looks like a palm tree.

My bro in law grew a bunch of alabama red variety,and it is some count right there off the bush.. I nibble off that thing every time I'm at their house. I always thought it had to be fried or grilled or in a jambalaya,but raw is dang good.
