Highly productive and easy to grow. As someone also said however, they are quite small - roughly the diameter of my thumb and 5-6cm long.

Super high yields

I have these early long purples in my garden at the moment I cant believe how many fruits we are getting. Its hard to keep up. They are quite small though, I mean we eat 2 each per meal.

Grow well

These tend to be very small eggplants, maybe only 10-15cm maximum before they start to go yellow and overripe, so you have to get them off early. Otherwise the yield is high and the fruit is delicious!
