Product Description

This hybrid blend gives you a variety of fruits—an ivory, a purple and a purple and white striped. All weight in at around 3 oz., and fruit can be harvested early for baby size or left on the vine to mature for larger sizes. This eggplant blend has a long cropping period and can remain unpicked for quite a while before over maturing. Suitable for container growing, but very attractive in the edible landscape as well. Stars & Stripes puts on a pretty display with purple flowers and silvery gray foliage. 65 days to maturity.
