This incredibly delicious Iraqi variety comes from our friend Nael Aziz. Satiny, dark purple-black fruits get 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 are abundantly produced. Very heat tolerant and productive in our trials.

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.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, tall but compact

What are the cons? Nothing to dislike

Review:

I have to admit that I chose this variety based on its drought tolerance. We had a very dry summer here in PA in 2016, so drought tolerance was a priority. We've always had to work hard for our Black Beauty eggplants: protect the baby plants from hungry varmints, frequent watering, battling the continuous flea beetle assaults, and all for a few measly fruits. Aswad was a fabulous discovery for us. The seedlings were robust, there was no sign of transplant shock, and they grew and grew and grew! The plants eventually measured just under 6 feet tall, but didn't get overly wide. Our eggplant crop was more than plentiful, and no matter what size we used for dinner, they were delicious. As an added bonus, it was fun to slice them, see the creamy white, seedless interior, then watch as the few seeds inside turned light brown right in front of your eyes. Eggplant magic! We had literally dozens of fruits on only 5 plants. BTW, it rained a lot this past year and Aswad did not mind a bit.
