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.
Have not gotten any eggplants yet but our May was record cold, plants are healthy and a pretty purple! A nice surprise :)
Wonderful, compact, and productive. I started the seed indoors 2/18/17, planted in outside pot 6/4 after outdoor hardening a few weeks. As of 6/14/2017 the plant has over a dozen baby eggplants, some already 4" long. Lots more flowers too, so looks like it will keep up that pace of production. It is in a 22" pot with good compost and regular fish emulsion. Attractive large leafed plant, but the occasional spines on the leaves do bite!
