Review:

Tried these in 2015. Out of the 5 plants, I only got 2 fruits. Nothing special and my other varieties planted in the same location produced much better. I won't grow this variety again.

Review:

This eggplant took awhile to germinate it's first year, but it's probably due to the fact that I didn't use a heating mat nor did I keep my house warm, around 70 degrees. However, it did sprout, turned into a beautiful seedling, transplanted with ease, grew huge & strong, and out-produced the other four varieties I grew. Tons of adorable torpedo shaped (about the length of my average sized female hands), gorgeous lilac striped eggplants. I live in hot, dry Sacramento and we are experiencing a drought, but they just seemed to thrive under cardboard and about 3-4' of wood chips we chipped from a fallen oak tree. As far as flavor goes, they are very, very mild and tender when you cook them. NO bitterness! They are small making it a little more tedious to peel (I don't care for eggplant skin). I just seeded these (same seeds from last year) for this season and they all popped up easy peasy! My other varieties are taking their sweet time germinating. Love this variety!

Review:

I grew this particular variety from another seed company in 2013. It did well here in Northern Maine. I'm in a 4/5 zone and have to grow my eggplants in containers. Antigua eggplant is nicely compact and was absolutely beautiful in the containers with flowers! I plan to buy this seed from Baker Creek this year now that they sell Antigua. (They also sell more seeds per packet which is awesome if your a seed hoarder!) Just so you all know, I'm only a novice gardner, so everything I grow is treated as a fun experiment. Anything that actually bears fruit during the experiment is a plant worth growing again! I highly recommend Antigua.
