ac21686, Purple Jar has great looking fruit, but the plant hasn't done great for me, it's just always wilting in the sun, maybe it is sensitive to fertilizer, I really can't figure out what it wants. Taste I would rate as average, less complex than the greens or Mitoyo. Not bitter though.

habitat_gardener, they are both OP. I also think they are really good, possibly the best combination of good traits I have yet encountered in an eggplant, especially the Xi'an green. Productive, early and generative, big fruit, soft flesh, very good taste (about the same as Mitoyo), also not bitter even when old. A bit more plant vigour wouldn't hurt, which is why I'll try grafting next year.
