I second everything that the first review said plus would add can reach 8' in height and that the rows should be at least 4' apart so you can walk between them. My plants were slow to start but wwent crazy after 75 days. I would also add that I did not like the slight sweet taste for pickled okra. It was kinda weired. However , fried is awesome and 10 pods are all 2 people would want at a meal.

This is a tender okra with a slight sweet taste. My plants made a few pods at 60 days but went berzerk after 80 days. Many side shoots and the plants have become bushes. I'm geting pods to 11" long and almost 1" diameter and its still tender as a stick of butter.
