What are the pros? productive, stores well
What are the cons? smaller than expected
I direct sowed 7 seeds in my garden this past spring. Some didn't come up and needed to be resown, but eventually I ended up with 7 plants. They were situated in a seemingly bad spot of my garden with almost no direct sun, but I really had nowhere else to put them. To my surprise they have been my most productive plants this season, even when they were in complete shade with at most only reflective light. They are still flowering and producing even now, 7 months later. My plants don't produce very long eggplant, maybe 6" at the longest, and for whatever reason some of the fruit turn out bright yellow instead of purple. This may have to do with lack of sunlight, but that's just a guess. Regardless of size and color though, they are delicious and they keep forever on the plant and on the counter. They can withstand our 115 degree summers without issue, the fruits set and they weren't tough or dry at all. I highly recommend planting these if you're an Arizona gardener.
