Anie Oakley is a hybrid short season okra which will do well further north than traditional varieties. Plant is short and compact, but puts out a continuous crop of medium green ridged pods. good tenderness and flavor. This one and Blondie were the only consistent performers when I lived in the New River Valley. I prefer Blondie, but this one is almost as good.
