    55 days; NG. Testers liked the 2-foot-tall bushy plant and tasty pods, but the pods were often difficult to harvest. Not suitable for large-scale production.

    I had never grown any type of okra before, but this spring I decided I wanted to try doing so. I decided on "Baby Bubba" from Burpee due to its small size, suitable for a container. The plant is about 2 feet tall and I grow it in a 20 inch pot. The flowers are very pretty and the okra has an excellent taste. Keep the pods picked young and small or they get woody and too tough to eat.
