We received our foundation seed for this Kansas heirloom from a customer, Delbert Fleming. He’s been growing the variety since 1973, when he was given a start by a co-worker, who in turn received the seed from his Grandfather Kurtz. Compact plants usually grow to only chest height. Pick the pods at 6-8 inches, when they will still be nice and tender. Productive. Contains 30-75 heirloom seeds
Our grower received this okra from a man named Mercer, who had received it from his grandfather in the late 1960's.

Plants grow to 6-7 feet tall and are drought tolerant.
