The Okra is producing well. It is good breaded and fried, also just pan fried and served with Teriyaki or soy sauce. They go from small to large very quickly and once they are beyond 5 inches they can get tough and stringy. Best when picked in the 3 to 4 inch stage.
The flowers are beautiful, they look like Rose of Sharon. The plants can reach 4 feet in this climate.
