This incredibly delicious Iraqi variety comes from our friend Nael Aziz. Satiny, dark purple-black fruit gets very large—to 3 pounds or more. Shaped like a squat teardrop, the flesh is sweet and tender, perfect for grilling or baking. The fruit is abundantly produced. Very heat tolerant and productive in our trials.

Review:

I really love these eggplants, I never have germination problems, the plants are a bit slow to produce but keep producing all season I really like the flavor and texture, they're great for frying and baking, the only problem I have with them is I can't get enough of them. I will be growing them again for the 4th year in a row.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, large fruit

What are the cons? Matures late (some conditions)

Review:

This eggplant is very easy to germinate, plant, and grow. Ended up growing five plants. Due to several factors, the plants didn't reach full productivity until September. I then lost the plants to frost in October before receiving a ton of fruit (although what I did receive was huge and delicious). This likely has to do with a somewhat short growing season and planting too late. We also had a very cold April (hard frost a few days before May), so I couldn't get them into the ground until later than expected. Overall, if I had planned things better and known more about eggplants, I would have had too many delicious eggplants to eat. Drought tolerant, heat-loving, huge fruit, beautiful plants, nearly indestructible. They even survived through most of October, producing fruit after two frosts. Only a frost below 28 degrees finally killed them off. A great, hardy, delicious eggplant.

What are the pros? Delicious and tender

What are the cons? THORNS! Ouch! and hard to go

Review:

These were so amazingly delicious! They were hard to get going....germination rate was not the best. But I ended up with two very healthy plants that are LOADED with blooms and each currently have 3 mice sized eggplants on them. I harvested a HUGE one that was so perfect! The seeds were so small and not developed yet, it was not bitter at all. I harvested when it still had some of it's shine. This was the PERFECT eggplant for eggplant parm. Fair warning....the stems have some pretty wicked thorns! Ouch! Just take a knife and cut down at an angle like you are making triangles to cut the stem and cap off without loosing to much of the eggplant. I will totally grow these again especially since eggplant parm is my favorite. Yum.

What are the pros? Popped right up, growing fast

What are the cons? nothing so far

Review:

I am writing a review even though I have no eggplants yet. I received a package that had a note on it about low germination. They sent more seeds to make up for the supposedly poor germination rate. Anyway, I planted 4 seeds and all 4 popped right up. I planted on 1-22-18 and exactly 3 weeks later, the plants are a sturdy 5 inches tall with large leaves. They obvjously have high standards about germination rates it's awesome that they sent extra seeds, but I won't be needing them.
