Default Curious okra

On a lark, I'm growing an okra plant this year (someone was giving it away, so I rescued it). I grew up eating okra but have never tried to grow it. Also have no idea what variety this one is, though I assume it's something common.

Anyway, despite the late start, it's starting to put out little okras. Or rather a big okra. It's VERY fat, and squatty -- not the long, slender things I'm used to seeing -- and I can't decide whether to let it grow more (I know they get woody when you let them grow too big), or not. What do you think?
