Neutral Farmerdill On Nov 5, 2005, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

55 days. [Developed by Univ. of Arkansas and released for introduction to SESE in 1991.] 'Jade' is an early maturing, tender-podded, high-yielding okra. Compared to 'Clemson Spineless', 'Jade' has darker green pods, fewer side branches, higher average yields, and better ability to mature in late plantings. Plants average 4-1/2' tall and the straight, dark-green pods remain tender to 6". Recommended especially for home gardens, farmer's markets, and late plantings.
