Clemson Spineless Okra Abelmoschus esculentus
Clemson Spineless Okra was the all American selection winning Okra variety for 1939 and is a favorite among home gardeners.
Clemson Spineless Okra produces an abundance of dark green, straight, pointed, spineless pods which reach 6 to 9 inches long, but are best harvested at 2-3 inches in length.
Due to this okra variety's lack of spines, harvesting is easy!
Reaches up to 4 and a half feet tall and matures in only 55 days! Okra is used for soups, pickling and as a cooked vegetable.
Okra is high in Vitamin A and its beautiful flowers (it is related to the Hollyhock) make it an excellent edible landscape plant.
