DESCRIPTION: Willits is not good okra country; nights are cool here at 1400 ft. Cajun Jewel didn't seem to care. The short plants produced dozens of tender 5"-6" pods, with outstanding flavor. Already a favorite in the South, we suggest trying this jewel in the North too. See our website for recipes. < /p>
