Solanum melongena

Delicious non-bitter variety bred to tolerate the Northeast climate, which is not usually the most hospitable for eggplant. Bright green prolific fruits mature very early with no need to peel. Harvest when goose egg size. Great choice for cool, short seasons.

Eggplants always seem slightly magical and vaguely impossible creations – glossy skin in fully saturated hues that willingly support a huge range of flavors. A member of the nightshade family, eggplant is cultivated all over the world. It is a staple ingredient for Middle Eastern baba ganoush, Southeast Asian curries, Italian antipasta, or Greek mousakka. It can be canned or cooked and frozen. Nutrients: vitamins A, K, B6, thiamin, niacin, folate, magnesium and potassium.
