Midnight Queen Hybrid Eggplant
- Sweet & delicious
- Yields the entire summer
- Flesh doesn't turn brown
Vigorous and hardy, Midnight Queen is easy to grow and withstands drought, pest and disease. It has slow-to-develop seed which means a longer picking window. In fact, this variety will yield the entire summer. Fruits are 6-8 in. with glossy, purple-black skin and can weigh over ½ lb. each. Bright white flesh is meaty and succulent and won't turn brown when cut. Delicious baked, grilled or added to Asian dishes and stir fries. 55 days to maturity.
