Eggplant - Long Purple

Solanum melongena

HEIRLOOM Slender Italian style fruit with gorgeous dark purple coloring and mild flavor. Productive plants grow 22-38″ high. Harvest when fruit is 8″ long.
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.
