What are the pros? Prolific and tasty
What are the cons? NONE!!
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!
