This incredibly delicious Iraqi variety comes from our friend Nael Aziz. Satiny, dark purple-black fruits get very large—to 3 pounds or more. Shaped like a squat teardrop, the flesh is sweet and tender, perfect for grilling or baking. The fruit are abundantly produced. Very heat tolerant and productive in our trials.

What are the pros? Yield- large fruit

What are the cons? Decent flavor, others better

Review:

This year I included this variety in my trials for eggplant. I found it produces as advertised. The weight of individual fruits commonly exceeded 2lbs, and almost always over 1 lb. Each plant continues to set multiple fruit, and at the tail end of the season (getting ready to enter fall here), they continue to churn out fruit. I love the purplish-black sheen of the skin, but do not like the thickness. Depending on the method, the skin can remain tough after cooking. Taste is average- it is exactly what I would expect of a typical eggplant. I would compare these to Black Beauty in overall taste and size, with some differences in shape, primarily. If yield is your goal and you are not after a different color or different shape, this is a quality variety. I may continue to grow this variety in the future. However, I strongly favor Bangladeshi Long for taste and texture (also sold here at Baker Creek).

Review:

OMG this is the most amazing eggplant I have ever grown! I just harvested 2 2lb fruits, sliced, brushed with olive oil and baked, they came out with a creamy custard consistency that was out of this world! Plant is vigorous and strong, didn't get attacked by flea beetles or other pests, and continues to pump out fruits. Isn't fazed by our hot and dry weather at all.

What are the pros? Great for hot climates

What are the cons? Wear gloves to harvest

Review:

These are beautiful and produce well in hot dry soil. They tend to stay sweet even when they are large.

Review:

HUGE eggplants, so tasty grilled, and one is enough for a crowd. Strong plants need sturdy staking, and look fake because they're 30% fruit! Sure did impress my friends. First year growing this eggplant, but it's now one of only 4 every-year eggplants in the garden!

Review:

I've been growing eggplants for years and I've tried multiple different varieties. Aswad is the best in terms of productivity,size, taste, heat and cold tolerance and disease resistance . The plant is huge so consider space and support. I'll keep growing it forever.
