The origin story of this particular variety begins in Mississippi with a farm that belonged to the Fife family. Around 1900, a woman from the Creek tribe of Native Americans was said to have visited the farm and given them the seeds for the long-thin okra. The Creek were a nomadic tribe that lived in and around Georgia, Alabama, and Florida before the Europeans first came to the New World. Today, there are two primary Creek tribes, one in Alabama and one in Oklahoma. Though the variety came to the Fife farm via a woman of the Creek tribe, it isn’t clear whether the variety originated with the tribe.
