What are the pros? Not bitter

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

In early April of 2016, started plants indoors with heat mat and grow lights. Transplanted shortly after Mother's Day; added compost and topped off with mulch. Plants were far enough along to take full advantage of growing season in June, July, and August. No problems with bugs. Kept garden weeded and watered throughout hottest part of PNW summer. After harvesting first fruits, plants produced more -- for a total of 4 fruits per plant. Good-sized fruits were flavorful -- good breaded and fried...as well as being used in Eggplant Parmesan. As the PNW approached the end of its growing season, I allowed the last fruits to remain longer on the plants -- for seed-saving. Picked out the seeds from sliced fruits and was surprised to find that there was no "bitter" taste to the remainder of the over-ripe fruits. Delighted with the performance from this variety.

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.
