EGGPLANT – Long Purple

(100 seeds)

$4.00

(4 customer reviews)

Easy-slicing, cucumber-shaped fruits

If you’ve never tied to grow these elongated, purple-black aubergines, now’s the time to start. A heritage variety from Italy, it has firm, mild-flavoured flesh and bears heavily. An early fruiting variety, it usually produces four or more fruits per plant, and the elongated shape makes it easy to slice. An archaic superstition linked eggplants to insanity, but this plant will just make you crazy about aubergines!
