  • Slender, elongated eggplants are glossy with bright purple skin and white, tender, non-bitter flesh.
  • Fruit can be sliced lengthwise for grilling or lightly frying, and tender skin does not need to be peeled.
  • Sliced or diced fruit is great for a stir-fry or curry; its non-bitter flavour and tender texture will complement any sauce.
  • Plants are upright and semi-spineless, so they are very easy and painless to harvest.
  • Great in an in-ground garden or large container.
