Very nice eggplant. Gorgeous. Production was surprisingly good but I didn't expect or need much. Recommended. Nice mixed with Rosa Bianca.

This variety did not produce well for me in 2005 nor in 2006. The taste is exceptional but not enough to justify planting this variety vs other varities which have similar taste attributes. Perhaps my heavy soll type or location is not suitable for this variety of eggplant.
