Perkins' Long Pod
Abelmoschus esculentus

55 days — Also known as 'Perkins' Mammoth Long Pod', the pods are bright green, four to six inches long and borne on strong plants that can reach five to six feet in height.  It is a good choice for pickling, canning, and used in soups and gumbo. 

'Perkins' Long Pod' was bred by a Mr. M. B. Perkins of New Jersey.  According to the 1899 Johnson & Stokes Seed Company catalog, Mr. Perkins was a well-known truck farmer who developed the variety, ". . . after many years of careful selection."  They went on to say that, "The pods shoot out from the stalk within three inches of the ground and the whole plant is covered with them to the extreme height of the plant. The pods are an intense green color, of unusual length, nine to ten inches, very slim, and do not get hard , as is the case with other okras."  Each packet contains two grams, which is about 30 seeds.
