60 days. Lovely pods are a deep reddish-orange and are quite colorful. This Asian variety produces lots of flavorful 6-8-inch pods early, even in dry conditions. The plants are rugged and extremely productive. We love growing Jing with a green variety for a nice contrast of colors to offer in baskets or bundles at market. Plants are highly ornamental and are right at home in flower beds. Pods are best harvested young at about 4-6 inches long; allowing them to grow to the full size of 8 inches will result in woody pods. This is one of the most tender okra varieties that we have tried. It is a great choice for those unaccustomed to eating okra!
