Slender, elongated eggplants are glossy with bright purple skin and white, tender, non-bitter flesh. Fruit can be sliced lengthwise for grilling or lightly frying, and the tender skin does not need to be peeled. Sliced or diced fruit is great for a stir-fry or curry, and its non-bitter flavour and tender texture will complement any sauce. Plants are upright and semi-spineless, allowing ease of harvest and reduced scratching on fruit skin. Fruit are early to mature, and plants have very high yield potential if harvested regularly.
