What are the pros? Easy to grow

Review:

I only grew one of these... and I only needed to grow one. I have never had an eggplant produce like this one did. I was regularly giving away grocery bags full of these eggplants. I had to cut the plant back hard several times so that it wouldn't collapse under the weight of its own fruit. It also wouldn't stop producing. It started in summer and kept going all the way through fall until I tore it out because I couldn't stand the thought of eating another eggplant. For quite a while, I thought it wasn't as good as the Ichibans I also had in the garden; however, I didn't understand how to use different varieties in cooking. I tend to grill or roast eggplant. Ichiban is mild with thin skin and is great for this. Louisiana long green is not in my opinion. It is somewhat firmer and slightly bitter--at least mine was. I didn't like this until I gave a bunch to my friend and she stewed them with tomato and lemon. Use this eggplant with robust flavors and you won't be disapointed.

What are the pros? Very Productive

What are the cons? Gets seed fast, doesn't keep

Review:

I grew this variety for the first time in 2014. The single plant was very productive, but I didn't care for the eggplant as much as the other three varieties I grew. The plant kept blooming and producing, but the fruit gets seedy quickly and doesn't keep as well once it's harvested as the others did. Thumbs up for productivity, but I probably won't grow this one again. So far my favorites are Ping Tung and Tonda di Manfredonia.

What are the pros? Prolific, even in TX heat!

Review:

This is a excellent eggplant variety! I grew three different types this past summer and the Louisiana Long Green outshown them all! (The other two were Turkish Orange and then Ichiban.) I grew about a dozen of them, 6 in my Huglekulture bed and 6 in the native soil. The 6 in the Huglekulture bed produced a huge amount of tasty, tender fruits! I definitely saved the seeds because this variety is a keeper!

Review:

Louisianan Long Green in one of the most productive eggplants I have grown in my Inland Southern California garden. When I pulled up the plants a few weeks ago, I noticed that, unlike the Ichiban hybird I planted next to it, there was little or no evidence of nematode damage. This variety has earned a place in my gardening reperoire.
