The historic "Early Long Purple" has been a standard for many years in France and other parts of Europe. In 1885, Vilmorin said that this variety was best for Paris because of its earliness. Indeed this variety is still a great-producing early variety that yields delicious, elongated fruit that are quite beautiful and refined-looking, superb for slicing and many other uses.

What are the pros? Fantastic Pedigree given Franc

What are the cons? nada

Review:

Do not be discouraged by reviewers who have not created an environment conducive to eggplant seed germination. First, you need HEAT. That means if your ambient temp surrounding your seedling tray ISNT 85 F PLUS, you NEED a heat mat to get reasonable germination. you cannot lazy or make excuses away from a plant's given biology. If the heat isnt there, they wont pop. End of story. Second, the moisture needs to be there, BUT, eggplant seedlings, once sprouted, are horrific dampen-offers, meaning they get smacked by fungal attack that degrades and destroys their soil air interface stem/root system, killing the seedling. you need to use a professional high draining high aeration high moisture retaining mix that contains low surface organic matter (or anything a fungus could use to grow off of). Low PH media such as peat are great, because they hinder myco growth in absence of liming. Do not use peat and lime or you defeat the purpose. Good luck and use heat mats and precise media!

What are the pros? Very productive

What are the cons? Poor germination rate

Review:

Due to low germination rates, BK sent me 2 packets instead of one. Out of 2 packets just 2 seeds germinated. Rate like that is beyond low, however this is the most productive eggplant I have ever grown, beating Pingtung by far. It must like our coastal climate. We have had a very short growing season and rather cool this year with tomatoes ripening later than usual, but I have gotten over 2 dozen good sized and great tasting eggplants off a single plant with half a dozen on it right now. Plant is about 3 feet tall and needs no support. Will certainly grow it again.
