75 days. Tomato-shaped fruit starts out green, eventually turning a gorgeous red-orange with intriguing, two-toned green striping. Sweet, yellow flesh is non-bitter when harvested young. Very attractive—pretty enough to grow in the border!

What are the pros? prolific, small

What are the cons? mites, bitter skin

Review:

These were a lot of fun to grow. Everyone who's come to my garden is astounded to find out its an eggplant! I like the small size (~golf ball sized on average) because sometimes the standard purple size is just too big for a pasta dish. They keep surprisingly well once picked, but I would caution for those who are sensitive to bitter tastes to pick these when they just begin turning orange, but still mostly green. I didnt mind it too much, but even when i did, I would just grill them whole and peel away the skin. My biggest complaint was that in comparison to the other two varieties I grew (Ophelia and Rosa Bianca), These have been really susceptible to spider mites. I ended up aggressively removing all affected leaves, then hosed down stems well. This successfully knocked them out, and most of the plants have bounced back wonderfully by now, but I ended up having no production for about a month as the plants recovered. Manage mites early!

Review:

Super cute little eggplants, doing great in the hot humid Louisiana weather. I picked mine right when they started turning orange and didn't not fine them bitter at all. They have a wonderful flavor. The skin is nice too.

What are the pros? very productive

What are the cons? taste

Review:

This is the most bitter tasting eggplant I've ever grown and the more orange they get the more bitter they are. I've read you should harvest before they get too orange but even when green they are too bitter for my liking. Friends that also grew this agreed. To me this is more an ornamental eggplant than one for eating.

Review:

I grow on the low plains in blistering summer hear. This year has been hot and dry in our area. The Cookstown Orange eggplant are weeks ahead of my other eggplants and tomatoes. I have 4 plants and have harvested a half dozen off each and it is still July. The bugs especially liked these when I planted so I had to sprinkle with seven. I lost one but the other 4 are big and strong now and the bugs seem to be in check. I basically make pizza with them but instead of wheat crust I use eggplants for the base. I also have gifted several plants to others and they have commented on how much they like these eggplants. Great Random pick! A
