65 days. Small, purple-black fruits are produced in clusters on sturdy, compact plants. The blunt-ended fruits may be harvested when finger-sized, but may also be allowed to grow larger with no sacrifice of their mild, sweet taste and tender texture.

What are the pros? Beautiful flavour & texture.

What are the cons? Gets mites - but grows anyway!

Review:

This is the best eggplant i've ever grown! It gives plentiful supply of very little eggplants with an excellent flavour. Obviously, if you want to make baba ghanoush, a bigger fruit would make life easier, but for a two-person household, these are ideal, just halved and roasted (cut side down in a little garlic-scented olive oil). So far, every one we've eaten has been sweet and delicate, with a perfect, melting texture - never bitter or fibrous, in spite of the fact that we don't always manage to keep the water up to them. And of course, we're not trying to wade through a family-sized eggplant - just a little here and there. We have four plants for the two of us, and so far, that's been perfect. Having just read the information here, i'll be allowing one or two to grow larger, and maybe i *will* make baba ghanoush! (Sabich is next on the list; pretty sure they'll be perfect for that)

What are the pros? Very mild flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

This was by far my favorite eggplant we've grown. The flavor was extremely mild even when the fruit grew to 8 or so inches. These were not bitter or seedy at all, and the fruit remained tender regardless of size. We will definitely include these in our garden next year!

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Skin tasted bitter on some

Review:

Grew several plants last year which allows you to have some little eggplants every few days once they mature. Great on the grill or in the oven. I neglected to pick one last year and it ended up growing to about 12 inches. But it is best to pick once they reach 4-6 inches to prevent toughness. Plant grew to 6 feet and produced weekly until the frost. This is a must to include in your garden. I like the smaller variety eggplants which produce many eggplants more often. Worked well in 5 gallon buckets. Only drawback was that the skin tasted bitter on some.

What are the pros? Lots of fruit, mild taste

What are the cons? Hard to use them all

Review:

I'd never grown eggplant before, but this made me a believer. We had a steady stream of these little beauties all summer and fall long. Their mild flavor meant I could sneak them into all kinds of recipes and neither my picky husband or my daughter ever noticed. Even avowed eggplant haters had these and were converted!

Fun to grow as a novelty

What are the pros? Over abundance of tiny fruit

What are the cons? Flavor

Review:

I agree with other posters, this is a very easy eggplant to sow and grow. I live in Colorado (zone 4), and the plant produced quite a bit. The only thing I was sad about is (being a huge eggplant fan), this type tasted bland and tasteless. I'm huge on eggplants, but I simply could not enjoy this. Tried it every which way: grilled, baked, sauted; you name it, I tried it. Same result every time. Mushy and tasteless. Almost left a bad after taste in my mouth. I'd recommend other cultivars like Rosa Bianca, or other Italian varieties. This is more of a novelty grow.
