This excellent hybrid okra is developed by a leading seed company in India. Plants are tall, erect and well branched. Okra pods are 12 cm long and 2 cm across, 5 to 6 ribbed, smooth skin in dark green color. First harvest can be obtained 50-55 days after transplanting. This variety is tolerant to yellow mosaic virus and other disease attacks.
