Updated from earlier review. I had eight plant, at least 4 too many
Very prolific, good tasting, beautiful purple plants( spikes=oh hues). I made batches and batches of ratatouille and gave tons away( think "zucchini " like lol), made ratatouille soup to freeze.
Beautiful fairly sturdy plants although I did
have to stake them due to the dozen or more eggplants on each vine pretty much constantly.
Only problem with them is I really wanted to make eggplant parm with them and the fruits aren't good for that, too small in diameter and not really long enough to slice length wise for that dish. Grilling kind of the same problem. So won't be growing them this year .
Is year but for any other use they are good.
