Beck's Gardenville Okra
Abelmoschus esculentus. A Texas heirloom from Texas organics legend Malcomb Beck of San Antonio. A vigorous, productive and drought-tolerant plant with green, short, stocky ribbed pods are tender up to 3" long. Also known as "giant-pod okra", the young pods are tender, tasty, and low in mucilage. Easy to tell when its the right time to pick, as the pods snap off the stalk easily. An indeterminate producer that can be harvested over several months. From our Seed Bank Collection.
