After many failures with other varieties I am having an excellent season thanks to this variety. I have learned to crowd to eggplants a little bit with about 12-16" spacing. They really seem to like to be able to touch eachother and support eachother. The yield on this variety is amazing and it is tolerating this volatile new york climate very well!
