Did fairly well. Plenty of eggplants. Hard to tell when to pick them as their final size can vary a lot from 3" to 10". They are smaller when they form in clusters. No bitterness even if overripe.

A long slender oriental type hybrid that will grow to about 9 inches. It tends to grow in clusters of three or so, but is larger and more usable than Slim Jim. 2008 AAS winner.
