I unfortunately planted the Orka too late in the season in Amarillo Texas. However it still grew WONDERFULLY! I was able to harvest from 3 out of the 5 plants that came up. Next year I'll plant sooner.

Thank you for trying our Star of David Okra seeds, Michael! We're glad to hear that you had a positive experience, even though you planted them late. We hope you'll try again next year, and plant sooner!
