What are the pros? tough, productive, delicious

What are the cons? was NOT large

Review:

While I was disappointed with the size, none longer than 5 inches, it was one of the tastiest eggplant I've grown. Since it was advertised as bred for Florida, I put it in the ground (I grow all others in container, as they don't do well at all in the dry rapidly draining nutrient depleted sand we have here), and it performed surprisingly well - still not great, but better than any others. I am, however, looking forward to see how it will perform in container. It's a very good eggplant, if you don't mind them being small.

What are the pros? Great sized fruit

What are the cons? Produces a bit late

Review:

This is a great eggplant! Plants got 3 feet or so tall and produced beautiful large flower and medium to large size fruit. The diamond eggplant produced more but smaller fruit. Gave some of these away as gifts. Only downside is they produce later, but it says right on the package 85 days. Also the flea beetles will decimate eggplant in KY, but we use DE every time it dries off after a rain.

planted in central fl for a summer crop. grew big about 3 to 3 1/2 feet then waited 2 months to flower. only 4 or 5 fruits per plant about the size if my fist. thai white ribbed eggplant was far superior producer. when frost killed we pulled up 4 of each type. we found 30+ fruits developing and only 6 were Fl market.

Review:

I grew this plant last summer- an excellent, hot summer here in Southern Wisconsin (zone 5a). The plant was lovely, and the few eggplants we collected were tasty, but the plant was just coming into its own when the season ended. I will not plant it again, here, but would certainly recommend it to someone with a longer season.

Review:

I started these under light and was very pleased to be able to transfer them to larger cups until warm weather. We had the same hot summer everyone in the Midwest had, and the Eggplants grew great and produced heavy. They all succumbed to the infestation of potato bugs! When the potato crop was harvested,the potato bugs removed the vegetation from the Eggplants. If I had noticed early on I don't think I would have lost my Eggplants. They looked and tasted great.
