    Surprise favorite!

    Yes, it's not flashy, just green, just egg shaped. But WOW! I cooked this with an Asian eggplant (Long Purple). While I still really like the long purple, these were the winner by far, sweeter with a creamy delectably firm texture and tender skin (it doesn't stay green when cooked - maybe if you blanch it, but I haven't tried). Total delish! Productive plants, and early as stated and keeps producing, great for my NE Massachusetts climate.
