Get ready to harvest a bumper crop of tiny eggplants! The glossy, purple-black eggplants are never bitter, even if you leave them on plants for a few days once they ripen. Fruits mature in just 45 days, and once you start picking, you won’t stop until fall frost. This is a 2014 All-America Selections award winner, developed for the shorter growing seasons of the Midwest and Northeast, though it grows well in a wide variety of climates. To grow in containers, plant one per 18-inch pot.
