Quoted from Baker Creek - "Cylindrical fruit are very attractive-looking, being purple-gray with dark purple streaks. This variety was collected in Bangladesh. "

I am excited to grow this as it's one of the most unusual eggplants I have seen. Very little is known about it and Baker Creek is the only place that offers it. I will post photos this summer once it is mature.

From another Baker Creek reviewer of the plant: "Very productive. Early and huge harvests. Good size.."
