Beck’s Big Buck (Snapping) Okra


  • Grown, sold, and described by Bunny Hop Seeds
  • Approx. number of seeds per pack: 20+

“Beck’s Big Buck” okra makes very fat, ribbed pods that remind me of Star of David, except that the new growth has a bit of red, and the harvest size for tender pods in length and circumference was a bit smaller for me with Beck’s Big Buck. The history is lovely, and looks to be reported accurately by Fedco Seeds, “When Malcolm and Delphine Beck bought their farm in 1968 in Comal County, Texas, they found in the abandoned garden giant okra stalks with the fattest pods they’d ever seen. They saved and replanted the seed, and it grew big fluted remarkably tender delicious green pods in abundance on sturdy plants. They called it the snapping okra because it snaps so easily off the plants when it is ready to harvest.”
NOTE: International orders must select the “Padded Envelope with Customs Form and Tracking” option during the checkout process. Okra seeds cannot be shipped in plain envelopes, due to crush injury of the seeds without sufficient padding.
