It was always heavy with eggplant just like you see here. All the Ichibans we've grown were like this.

Last year we tried a generic Italian-type and didn't do well. Even if you do everything right, if the variety is flawed, well......you win some and you lose some.
That thing looked just like mine last year.
They have always been heavy producers for me I just dont like them.

I like the fat grocery store eggplant like Black Beauty .
