'Hansel' Eggplant- what's your opinion of it?
Hi guys! I had tried planting eggplants in the ground many years ago but it didn't do much, so this year I tried a 'Hansel' in a pot. The plant was quite large when I bought it, and put on booms soon after I planted it. There are tons of fruit on it. I read from Parks Seed that you can pick them from 3in. all the way up to 10in. Last night I grilled two. One was about 5in. long, the other a bit smaller. The inside was wonderful; great taste. But the skin was really tough. I don't know if that is typical for this cultivar, or it is because I give it too much/not enough water, or something else.
I am interested to hear what you guys think of 'Hansel'. Are the skins on yours are tough as well? How do you like the taste?
Are there any others you find are better? I am curious, since I will be growing lots more eggplant next year, though probably not 'Hansel'. ;-)
