Large fruits are oval to teardrop-shaped and nearly black. Flesh is very tender and sweet, it is even highly recommended for use without cooking! Fruits are also excellent baked or roasted, and are often used in pickling as well in their native Japan, were the variety was originally collected at a local market. Traditionally grown in the Mitoyo and Kanonji areas. One of the best tasting eggplants we have ever tried.

What are the pros? Delicious, cooked or raw

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

This is a beautiful and delicious eggplant. Dark purple with matching stem. I was skeptical that it is edible raw, but beyond my wildest dreams... IT IS! You can certainly eat it raw. It's sweet and spongy but tender. So weird! It's great cooked which is why I grow eggplant. Very easy to grow and produces well. Will be planting again!

What are the pros? Never bitter! Productive!

What are the cons? None

Review:

We grew two plants this year and have harvested 15 lbs since the end of June, and it now December! Each fruit averaged about 10 oz. We started the seeds under grow lights with a heating mat in early January along with a bunch of other eggplant varieties from a different seed company. The Mitoyo seedlings were by far the strongest, and were the only two to survive to transplant. I have not had very good luck with eggplant seedlings, good track record with all other vegetables though. I was initially disappointed, but as soon as I tasted this eggplant the disappointment vanished. This is by far the tastiest eggplant I have ever tried, THERE IS NO NEED TO SALT THE EGGPLANT!! This made cooking so much more approachable and pleasing. We have very hot summers in Austin and none of the eggplants were bitter, not even in the slightest. You could defnitely eat this eggplant raw. Can't say enough good things about it! This variety will always be in my garden!

What are the pros? Wonderful taste!!!

Review:

I am not a huge eggplant fan but this one is amazing! It has an incredible taste raw. We had a very wet and cold summer here in the Ottawa area and despite the weather, this type of eggplant produced very well. The plant itself didn't get very big, but ir produced a lot of fruit. I did have a hard time with my seedlings however. They all sprouted but I lost 4 out of 6 for unknown reasons. I blame myself however as I did not tend to them properly. Despite this, once in the garden, they did very well. No problems with disease or pests. I will stick to with the Mitoyo for many years to come. You definitley must try!!!
