What are the pros? Great taste and prolific
What are the cons? Inconsistent
I've grown this eggplant for 4-5 years under various conditions. The first year was the best year that I had for these eggplants, when I grew them in an earthbox. The second year I tried them in the ground with poor results that I attributed to the lack of water. The third year I tried them in an earthbox again--the plants grew beautifully but the fruit kept reverting to a white color instead of purple and ended up with a bitter taste. The fourth year the plants were attacked by aphids and the fruit all reverted to white. I had high hopes for this eggplant but am giving up on it for a few years and trying a different Asian eggplant. Maybe I'll try it again if I can't find a better Asian eggplant. I'm going to say that I recommend it with reservations.
