Okra ‘Candle Fire’ (AAS Winner)

2017 AAS Winner. A unique red okra with pods that are round, not ribbed, and a brighter red color than the reddish burgundy okras currently available. This high-performing AAS Winner received high marks for productivity, taste, texture, and tenderness as well as the ornamental value of red pods on red stems. One judge noted that Candle Fire okra was quite a maintenance free to grow, except for the frequent harvesting, which is a great thing! Candle Fire thrives in the heat and is disease resistant even in hot, humid climates like the south where it’s perfect for traditional fried okra. Suitable for both fruit producing and ornamental usage. Aged fruit can be used in flower arrangements. Dry seed can be used as coffee (without caffeine.). Please call the store (740) 763-2873 for availability, prices, and sizes.
