Review:

My first ever eggplant! I've grown tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, carrots, and beets before. The Rosita was an experiment this year. For the first few months, the flowers would all dry up and not produce. I even tried all the tricks for polination! But then at the start of July, it started taking fruits. (Maybe change in my watering, due to drought conditions? We can only water 3 times a week.) Haven't harvested any yet (suggests 8" long?? Longest one I have is about 5", should I harvest?) and while the photo shows them a solid color, mine are stripey at best, while the first one is a pale lavender hue. Most also have a burn on the bottom, IDK if from the heat? Can't wait to try this, since the reviews suggest a good-tasting flesh. But now that it's going, I have several fruits growing all at once.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
