"This variety is a cylindrical, shiny green eggplant variety with vigorous and abundant growth. Fruits are very uniform in size and shape and show a very good shelf life. Fruit shape is long (about 25-27 cm) and straight, with weight around 200-220 gram. Very high yield potential. Maturity is 40-45 days after transplanting (early maturity). The first harvest will occur around 3 weeks days after initial flowering. Average yield is 7-8 fruits per plant." Hybrid.
