Okra Seeds - Granddaddy's


Abelmoschus esculentus

Originally said to be from Mr. Rex Eubanks of Whitney, TX whose family had stewarded the variety for over four generations. Found growing in the garden of John H. MacDonald who was one of the founders of the Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association and sent in to SSE where Sow True Seed acquired the seed. Long, thin pods have a delicious flavor and are best picked under 6” long. Good production in spite of disease pressure.
