Kınalı Bornova is a traditional red okra variety from West Turkey. Strong, productive plants grow long, flavorful pods that develop red coloration on pods. As the pods grow, color fades and remains mostly around the tip of the pods. Kınalı Bornova is a mid-season okra with excellent flavor.

This okra produced well, tasted great, and is really pretty too boot.

Good okra. Tender to a large size. Not as productive as some. Good germination.

The seeds were slow to germinate and did not produce any okra. The plants grew and were comparable to the other okra plants growing around it. I’m guessing and hoping that an earlier start in the spring time will produce the results I’m looking for. I’m in zone 7B, Central Arkansas.
