What are the pros? Easy to grow, large fruit
What are the cons? Matures late (some conditions)
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.
