What are the pros? Flavor and beauty
What are the cons? Needs hotter climate to thrive
It was a surprise to see fruit one day after a long time with flowers and nothing else. We also had a cold growing season, and these need more heat than other seedlings to sprout and grow well (if at all). It is worth it, regardless of this years difficulties, since it has a mild flavor and is an absolutely beautiful fruit and plant. Grow it as an ornamental even if you don't like eggplant at all! Pick these SMALL since they will become seedy at the size of a duck egg. Prolific seeds are great to save, no worries there!
