Hello Peebee: Glad to hear you lived here in Hawaii, great place. The green eggplant is firmer than the long Japanese eggplant. It does not have that "bite" on the tongue that the purple ones have. Taste is on the mild side, not bitter at all. I think the green eggplant from UH will grow in dry sunny weather as long as it gets watered twice a day. I have them growing in 25 gallon half barrels. I use a large plastic bag and 3 foot high wire fencing over the containers to incubate the seedlings till they are about 2 feet high (a month). The UH seed program is very cheap and you get lots of seeds for the $1 Home Garden Package that are also postpaid.
