Review:

We grew them in a container garden last summer in NE Ohio. We started them in February. Be patient. They take a while to germinate, but we had 100% germination. The plants produced clusters of pretty purple flowers which turned into bunches of eggplants. The fruits were a beautiful purple and had a mild flavor. They were delicious stir fried. If you plant them in containers (we re-purposed cat litter buckets), make sure you keep them well-watered especially toward the end of summer. By late summer they were attacked by aphids, but they continued to thrive. We kept them watered and occasionally sprayed them with pyrethrum/chrysanthemum spray or soapy water.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
