Shikou Hybrid Eggplant

Slender Asian eggplant is 6 to 8 inches long and dark purple with a purple calyx to match. Very few seeds, tender skin, and white flesh make this eggplant easy to prepare. No peeling or salting is necessary and fruit can be easily sliced and sauteed, stir-fried, or cooked on the grill. The Japanese word Shikou means “supreme” and we think that is a fitting name for this very high-quality eggplant. Medium-sized plants are quite productive. 70 days.
