75 days. Massive fruits are nearly round to slightly teardrop shaped, and sometimes very slightly ribbed. Their rich dark purple exterior also glistens with a satiny greenish sheen—quite spectacular to see! The white flesh is as good as the fruit looks, being mild, tender, and slow to discolor when sliced; superb in parmagiana dishes. Yields all season long. Heirloom type grown for generations in Tuscany, in northwestern Italy.

Review:

I'm a recreational home gardener, and do all container growing here in South Florida.. Up until this year, all I had grown regarding Eggplant was Black Beauty from starter plants bought at Lowes & Home Depot.. I was lucky if I got a few decent edible fruits from the plants.. I bought a grow-light system and have been learning to start my own plants from seed.. Very rewarding, and I love growing the many varieties that I'd never seen or heard of before.... This year I grew 10 Prosperosa plants from seed I bought from Baker's Creek, and have them transplanted in 20 Gal containers.. I'm a bit stunned, as I didn't expect results remotely like this.. Big, beautiful plants, loaded with attractive Eggplants.. Some plants have as many as 8 fruits, with some close to being ready to pick -- about the size of a grapefruit, a few bigger.. The plants almost don't look real, none of my friends & neighbours can believe what they are seeing... Having a ball with these..

Review:

I've grown everything from Japanese White Egg to Thai-type eggplant, plus a few standard American types like Black Beauty. Nothing compares to Prosperosa. It has the bounteous size of the larger American types with the firmness and flavor of the smaller egg-types. Because we love them in everything from curry to parmigiana, I make room in my garden for at least 4-5 plants every year. I gave a Prosperosa fruit to a vegetarian friend and she later asked me where I got it because it was the best eggplant SHE'D ever tasted, either. I happily pointed her in the direction of Baker Creek.

What are the pros? Everyone raves about the taste

What are the cons? None

Review:

Until I grew Prosperosa, I used to grow 8 different eggplants. Now I will only grow Prosperosa. The taste beats every other eggplant. It also has good production. I have had no disease problems.

Review:

My eggplants were also small, misshapen and for the first time ever, I learned what a bitter eggplant tasted like. I will not be planting this variety again.
