Aswad Eggplant

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:

We grew these from seed this year (just one plant). The plant took a while to get going but now is producing beautiful, huge fruit. My wife, who is an eggplant aficionado, says we should grow only this variety next year.

Review:

One of the best eggplants I have ever grown. Our weather this year was very wet for several weeks then extremely hot early. These eggplant thrived despite the hot weather and humidity. It is the middle of August and they have been producing since May and show no sign of slowing down. Ping Tung was my favorite until this year. I will definitely plant again next year.

What are the pros? productive and vigorous

What are the cons? late fruit set

Review:

The Aswad eggplant has to be my favorite variety I have ever grown. The plants grow extremely fast and fruit set is insane. Overall, I got at least 5 decent sized eggplants off each plant. This variety also grows quite well in hard clay waterlogged soil. The leaves are huge as well and the roots grow very deep allowing the plant to withstand storms very well.

What are the pros? Beautiful, firm, and delicious

What are the cons? None

Review:

These were the best eggplants I have ever grown. We ate most of them sliced and grilled after brushing with a mixture of olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and pomegranate molasses. I think we could eat an infinite number of these. My only regret is that we didn't save ourselves any for the freezer!

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.
