These shiny, deep purple Italian-type eggplants set all season long. Fruit grow to a uniform 6-8 inches, but can be picked at an earlier stage for delicious baby eggplant; the healthy, upright plants will just keep coming! Traviata has excelled through less-than-ideal seasonal conditions, and even managed to grow past some heavy flea beetle pressure where other varieties struggled. 55-60 days.
Care: Plant 12-18″ apart in rows 3′ apart in warm sunny area when danger of frost is past.
