Perkins Long Okra

Perkins Long Okra

Perkins Long Pod okra is a high-yielding, heirloom variety from the 1800s that's perfect our deep Southern heat. They are an early maturing variety that grows over 6' and produces loads of bright green 8-inch pods. The tender, smooth pods are delicious whether fried, sautéed, roasted, or used in gumbo.


Interplant with basil, marigolds, calendula, onions, garlic, chives, thyme, rosemary, and oregano to improve flavor, increase harvest, repel harmful pests, and attract beneficial insects like bees and ladybugs.


Starter will be in a 4" reusable nursery pot.
