Okra question

Alba, TX(Zone 8a)

I not grown Okra before, but would like to this summer. I was thinking maybe Dwarf Long Green Pod. Has anyone grown this one? If so what did you think?

Okra does really well in our area. Especially during our hot summer.
I never grown this variety, but I have grown so many others. I love to grow red okra. I think because it is easier to see the pods.
I always soak my seeds at least 12 hours before I plant them. It makes a huge different on the sprouting time.
I will start my seeds maybe in March. In this way I can plant it out in May and have a good start on the season.
Okra doesn't like to be planted out when it is cold. It will stunt the plant.

I soak my seeds overnight, seed them in paper pots, once up and going they're transplanted into warm garden soil paper pot and all! The roots easily grow through the newspaper. No more peat pots for me...
