Requires staking. Disappointing flavor, poor germination, and lackluster yield.

Wow!! This one came out early and kept giving. Each plant grew over a dozen! The fruits are gorgeous, pinky-purple or dark lilac, some as long as 2' and 2" in diameter. Some also grow in a wonderful slight curl or spiral. Large green plants 3-4' tall need strong staking to hold up all that eggplant.
