Certainly a prolific and early to fruit variety. being small it is tedious to peel. Pick it young and the skin is tender and will not require peeling.

Cute, egg-shaped fruit, averaaging 1 - 2" in diameter, and 3 - 4" long. Beautiful dark purple color, great resemblance to standard sized eggplant. Mild flavor, very good in baked dishes. Easy to grow from seed, grew very well until summer got very hot, then basically stopped producing.
