Disappointing flavor. Plants also were too tall for me to manage easily.

This is the best Italian style eggplant that I have grown. Outperforms Vittoria and Twilight in all categories. I prefer the flavor of the Japanese types like Ichiban and Millionaire, but this one is good eating. The long chubby fruits are a better size for many dishes than the slender oriental types.
