F1 hybrid. 65 days. One of the largest and earliest ‘classic’ eggplants. Prolific. The very large, oval, dark purple fruit reaches 8” and up to 1 ½ pounds on sturdy, upright plants. Open plant habit and spineless calyx make harvesting easy. The extended shelf life is an added bonus! Eggplants are remarkably versatile, taking on the flavor of whatever they are cooked with. They are very low in calories and fat, high in fiber, a good source of an assortment of minerals, and have a very low glycemic index. Photo courtesy of Territorial Seed.
