60 days — Under optimum conditions, 'Red Burgundy' okra, also sold as 'Burgundy' by some merchants, has attractive plants that reach four to five feet in height. Its beautiful, hibiscus-like, creamy-yellow colored flowers develop into burgundy colored pods that should be harvested at three to four inches in length, but remain tender to about six inches. The pods turn green when cooked. As noted, its plants are quite ornamental with burgundy stems, leaf ribs, and pods contrasting nicely with its green leaves.

'Red Burgundy' okra was developed by Leon Robbins[1] at Clemson University in South Carolina and introduced in 1983. It was an "All-America Selection®" winner in 1988. Each packet contains two grams, which is about 30 seeds.
I am not a big okra fan just because of the slimy film.This burgundy okra is great, little or no slime and the taste is awesome. Made several different dishes and everyone that ate them said the okra was amazing and commented on the lack of the slimy taste.It produced well up into the summer with very little watering and stood up to the drought well.

Grows great, produces fast, stays tender to 6 inches!
I love this okra. It stays tender up to six inches long, more than any other okra I know of! These grow well and make it through the 110ºF degree weather we have here! They don't even quit producing when it gets that hot. I water weekly.

This okra we grew three years ago. It is a very sweet variety of okra. It adds great color and flavor to our gumbos and pickle medleys. We had 100% germination. Thirty seeds yielded thirty plants that reached to over four feet, with an abundance of pods. The seeds preserved very well for the next season. This was a great choice!

OMG Fast
Sprouted one inch long root in a day and a half; direct sunlight in Kuwait! In three days I transplanted into the grow bed. Waiting for the pods, but so far it's been less than a month and the plant is great!
