What are the pros? Beautiful, healthy, productive

What are the cons? Bitter taste not for us

Review:

This eggplant has everything for us in Houston, except the taste. We ended up throwing most of them away and eating our Lousiana Greens, Millionaires and Pingtungs that grew in the same location instead. Will not grow again.

What are the pros? Nice fruit, tastes good

What are the cons? Terrible yield, poor plants

Review:

I had 15-20 seeds germinate, I transplanted 5 plants. Only 1 plant grew and did well-the others did grow, but did very poorly. The one plant that produced, only had 2 fruits all summer. I have always had excellent luck with eggplant, but not this year with this kind. Will NOT plant again.

What are the pros? finally producing

Review:

we are semi-desert and none of the other eggplant produced well. these took a while - probably due to our 100 degree weather during the summer - but are finally kicking out delicious fruit!

Eggplant Review
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? prolific and easy to grow

What are the cons? thorns and bitter

Review:

I prefer the mild taste of the Asian varieties such as Ping Tung or Fengyuan. This one is more bitter than expected. Grows very well and not too many pests. Flea beetles attacked leaves this year but not enough to do any real damage. I had excellent yield even in pots. This one continues to produce many batches of beautiful striped eggplants but I do fertilize regularily since tomatoes and eggplants are heavy feeders.

What are the pros? Flavor, prolific, beautiful

What are the cons? thick skins

Review:

These are the best tasting eggplants I've grown. I grow Ichiban, Black Beauty, and Casper, and these are easily the taste winner. They were some of the first to mature, somewhere in size between your standard European eggplant and an Asian long variety. The flavor is rich and nutty. In a mixed dish of roasted eggplant, we could easily tell when we got a bite of this variety. And they're so pretty to look at. Nice that there's some substance to it. Only complaint is the skins are thicker than Asian eggplant, but I find that's the case with most European-style eggplants.
