What are the pros? Beautiful flavour & texture.
What are the cons? Gets mites - but grows anyway!
This is the best eggplant i've ever grown! It gives plentiful supply of very little eggplants with an excellent flavour. Obviously, if you want to make baba ghanoush, a bigger fruit would make life easier, but for a two-person household, these are ideal, just halved and roasted (cut side down in a little garlic-scented olive oil). So far, every one we've eaten has been sweet and delicate, with a perfect, melting texture - never bitter or fibrous, in spite of the fact that we don't always manage to keep the water up to them. And of course, we're not trying to wade through a family-sized eggplant - just a little here and there. We have four plants for the two of us, and so far, that's been perfect.
Having just read the information here, i'll be allowing one or two to grow larger, and maybe i *will* make baba ghanoush! (Sabich is next on the list; pretty sure they'll be perfect for that)
