• Long Purple Eggplant
    80 days from transplant

    One of our most popular eggplant varieties! This is the queen of all summer vegetable crops! Beautiful deep-purple, nearly seedless fruits. For best flavor, fruits should be harvested when small and young (8-10") Up to 8 fruits per plant. The sweet, mild taste is unsurpassable! Stir fry with your favorite oriental dishes or add to sauces for your favorite pasta! Homegrown foods are far better than store bought and much more rewarding!
