What are the pros? early, prolific, huge plants
What are the cons? none
Last year was a banner year for eggplants. I grew a dozen varieties with Bangladeshi Long being one of the 3 earliest. It has an excellent eggplanty flavor with nice thin skin, produces lots of eggplants that are slow to make seed, and was the tallest plant topping out at 5 feet. Interesting thing about this eggplant, the fruit starts out purple and as it grows longer it turns green with purple striping. In my experience cool weather early on can stunt eggplant seedlings, so covering them with a floating row cover or vented plastic containers the first couple weeks can really help plants get established.
