80 days. This beautiful heirloom comes from Turkey. The 3” round fruit are best cooked when they are green to light orange. This variety has very sweet and flavorful flesh. It imparts a strong, rich flavor to any dish. The small plants yield well. This variety is great for ethnic markets. Very ornamental-looking.

What are the pros? excellent flavor

What are the cons? didn't like 100 degree days

Review:

Neat little plants, ours were planted in two different gardens. one group of plants didn't do well at all. they were in my home garden full sun and a brutally hot summer. one of the six remained a sad little stick I overlooked when I removed the others. The other group were sprinkled in the local middle school garden project. Those plants grew huge and has produced consistently. Our favorite thing to do with them is to make capinata with them. If I can get them in early enough next year i'll definitely plant them, hopefully our brutal 7a sun isn't quiet a bad at the home garden next year. I noticed the tiny sad leafless stick I forgot to remove from the home garden. last week I noticed it has grown 11 inches put off two branches and was flowering so who knows I might get some of these at home too! I sure hope so.

What are the pros? None

What are the cons? Bugs tore up this variety

Review:

I grew 4 types of small eggplant last year. It seemed like the bugs targeted this variety all summer. Out of 100 plants this one was targeted and took a beating from the bugs. I didn't have any luck wit this variety. In its defense I started late on the eggplants & I didn't use any bug spray to prevent bugs. Didn't grow this variety this year.

Review:

I shared this eggplant with neighbors and not even I liked it enough to grow it again next year. It looks beautiful, but the taste I can do without.

Review:

Extremely productive, I literally had bags of fruit from two plants. Slightly bitter, yes, but also sweet. Big, vigorous plants needed support.

Review:

The unique vibrant colour of these eggplants make them stand out on any market table. I enjoyed the sweet flavour, however I found it had a mildly bitter after taste. It is heavy yielding. We had one in our greenhouse growing, and a tomato horn word ate every leaf on the plant, but it continued to produce (small) fruits and regrow its leaves.
