65 days. Small, purple-black fruits are produced in clusters on sturdy, compact plants. The blunt-ended fruits may be harvested when finger-sized, but may also be allowed to grow larger with no sacrifice of their mild, sweet taste and tender texture.

What are the pros? Love. So easy to grow!

What are the cons? None

Review:

Even if you live in a northern mainland U.S. climate where summers can start in late May or not till July (I live in Zone 5B Polar Vortex) , you can grow these. I've grown in 10 inch pots, half wine barrels and even in the ground. (don't grow near brassicas, you won't get as many fruits). I companioned with haricot verts, petunias and Thai basil and had no problem with pests. The occasional spritz with Dr. Earths. But these babies always produced. I even got them into pots late this year (mid August 4-inch seedling transplants) and got three good harvests from four large pots, through 2ND week in October. We're talking 12-20 fruits anywhere from 5-9 inches in length. When transplanted by end of June, back in 2015, I had many weekly harvests with as many as 20 on one plant consistently all the way through end of September. I love eggplant and can eat it every day. (Pinakbet, parmesan, baingan bharta, Thai curry, omelets). Germination in 7-19 days, sometimes sooner. Seeds keep for 5 yrs!

What are the pros? Produces well all summer

What are the cons? Those darn flea beetles

Review:

I started a dozen seeds indoors and plants were in the garden mid-May. Eight plants survived the initial flea beetle attack and managed to outgrow damage to their leaves. Lots of purple blossoms appeared and in a few weeks I had eggplants. One of the plants put out light pink fruits and I thought initially it wasn't pollinated properly. After a couple of weeks I realized something was wrong with the plant itself and I pulled it. The remaining seven plants are producing nice, shiny purple fruits continuously through the summer. Flea beetles remain a problem. On Sept. 5 they are still flowering and I'll keep the plants going as long as weather permits. The small fruits mature quickly, which as the temperatures cool, is an advantage. I have made curried dishes, baba ghanouj, and Italian style dishes. The small size limits use in European cuisine. They are hearty and early maturing. I recommend Little Fingers if you've never grown eggplants or have had problems growing them in the past.

What are the pros? Space saving, prolific

What are the cons? .

Review:

I started a few seeds. All germinated. Figuring I'd kill them, and hoping I'd have at least one survivor, I planted all four plants. They grew to one foot tall, however they were also interplanted with Red Kuri Squash. All have started producing 3-5 inch fruits. I will plant again! Today for the family breakfast, I took some of the smaller diameter fruits, sliced them thinly, and sauteed them in butter, onion, and Italian Seasoning. I then added them to scrambled eggs and topped it with mozzarella and added a mystery tomato (red with green stripes?). Tasty!

What are the pros? Beautiful flavour & texture.

What are the cons? Gets mites - but grows anyway!

Review:

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)

What are the pros? Very mild flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

This was by far my favorite eggplant we've grown. The flavor was extremely mild even when the fruit grew to 8 or so inches. These were not bitter or seedy at all, and the fruit remained tender regardless of size. We will definitely include these in our garden next year!
