PKM1 is an early variety of bushy form and medium to dwarf size, reaching a height of 4 m in the first year after planting and it regrows rapidly after cropping. The leaves are wide and dark green on the upper side and pale green on the lower side. This variety is suitable for leaf production in high intensity cultivation and may be the most widely planted variety for large scale plantation drumstick production. It can produce flowers within 3-4 months of sowing, and the first pods in just 6-7 months. Though the flowers are in clusters of 25–150 per cluster, only one pod usually develops, rarely 2–4. The pods attain an edible size 65 days after flowering, are 45 – 75 cm long, of uniform length and color, tender even in late harvest, and good tasting. Their flexible form reduces breakage and they have an extended shelf life. Each tree produces 200-400 pods.
