Neutral Farmerdill On Jan 13, 2007, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

Orient Cannon is a vigorous and well branched tall plant, which begins to produce fruits about 45 days after transplanting. Medium size fruits in pentagonal cross section are 4-5" long and 1/2" in diameter. Okra pods in deep green color and smooth skin are very tender and well flavored. This high yielder variety is strongly resistant to yellow vein mosaic virus and other disease attacks.
