First year growing this variety and very, very pleased with performance of these plants. Eggplants are normally hit or miss here in Central New York State, unless they are container grown, but this variety put all the other to shame. Plants were healthy and had really good yield. They never quit setting fruit. Picked them mid-size so never found any bitterness.

Hamilton, Ohio, United States
Frost Free Season: 123 - 143 days
Soil Texture: Clay
Garden Size: Small - Less than 400 square feet (20' x 20')
Sun Exposure: 6 to 8 hours per day

This year was the hottest July in Cincinnati history and Nadia loved it. Plants got 6 feet tall and had minimum 6-8 fruit each, all picture perfect. Seeds germinated easily with bottom warming. Got them out late (mid-June) but still did fantastically. Water regularly and side-dress with fertilizer when first bloom appears. I use 6-26-26 in spring, side-dress with 12-12-12.

Not very much yield for me but the fruits I get are beautiful standard looking eggplant. Does not set fruit reliably for me.

Wow! Superb yields, even in our short Montana season. Beautiful, but the flesh tended to be a little mealy.
