Wow...very tall speciman...Normally they 4 to 6 feet range!
There is a variety...I have not see it lately..(haven't looked) But the Okra (pods) are red. It cooks up green however and is fairly good..Once, many years ago I planted some for the novelty...I had plants that reached 13 feet!
Had to gently bend them over to harvest pods from the top.

There is only one Quality worse than Hardness of Heart, and that is Softness of Head.
