What are the pros? Fast, super prolific, & sweet
What are the cons? Nothing
The ONLY downside is that it might be too sweet for some savory dishes. I have grown about a dozen different long eggplant varieties over the years. This is hands down the best yet. It withstood our wet, cold spring (I would have them covered with a clear tub if it was raining and brought them in every night) Between this one, Aswad, and the Syrian Stuffing varieties, this one stood up to regional conditions the best and yielded the soonest, despite the fact that summer never quite came to fruition this year, in terms of heat. My Thai chilies aren't even mature. I've been keeping this variety from seed for 4 years. It is fairly well adapted and still nothing but green peppers. Anyways, these were 2nd only to my tomatillos in terms of summer vegetable productivity. They have a beautiful swept appearance tinged with lots of purple. Yes they have some thorns, but EVERY heirloom eggplant, that I have ever grown, does. They got to be a bit over 3ft tall by 2.5ft wide. Heavy yielder!!!
