Review:

The standard variety of eggplant sold here in Michigan (zone 5) is "black beauty," which unfortunately takes forever to start producing. I was looking for an earlier variety that is also good quality. I found it here! These are smaller, measuring about 2" x 6" but are very productive and started producing in mid-July (when planted as 8 week old seedlings at last frost date). I am very happy with these and will plant them again next year.

My first year with eggplant
Easy to Grow 3.5
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Potentially early

What are the cons? A lot smaller than I expected

Review:

After growing these and reading other reviews, I think they are designed for wetter, more humid and/or more temperate climates than mine. Mine were probably too shaded, too. A fruit set on one of the plants (I planted several) before it got really hot. The plants wouldn't produce in the heat. I didn't know when to pick eggplant. So, I let the fruit stay on the vine until after it changed color. At that point, I think it was poisonous, as it made my throat burn, and I didn't feel so well for some days. I learned that you're supposed to pick them soon after they stop growing (before they get 'ripe'), I think, and most of the toxins (if present) are right by the skin (so skinning them helps). If they're under ripe or over ripe, they may have toxins in them. If they've changed colors, just use them for seed. I did save seeds. We got one or more fruits after it cooled down. Next time, I plan to grow Aswad, from Baker Creek, which should be larger, and better-suited to a desert-type climate.

Review:

Not as showy as many other eggplant I grew, but this was a prolific producer of good quality eggplant almost throughout the year. This eggplant was always standing by and ready to produce an armful while some of the larger eggplants I grew were sizing up. It was great grilled, saut?ed or roasted.

Review:

I grew two types this year. This was the first year that I grew eggplant successfully. This was my stand out winner! Good: taste, color, size, growth, maturity, germination and disease resistance! We have some REAL Italian friends I shared them with and they loved them. Small seeds and small seed cavity. Tender, not bitter and actually held on the plants until I could use them. LOVED THEM....They did perfect for my area this year!
