ALL AMERICA SELECTIONS AWARD. This gorgeous non-bitter eggplant can be harvested all the way from a tiny 2 inches up to a more mature 10 inches long, while staying mild with few seeds. Glossy, deep-purple finger-shaped eggplants appear throughout an extended season, so there is plenty of tender fruit for casseroles, grilling, or even stuffing. Compact plants grow no more than 3 feet tall. 55 days.
