I SELL AND SHIP MY SEEDS ALL YEAR LONG!

EGGPLANTS- LAST SEASON- LAST CHANCE ! STOCK UP NOW !

I have had several cold and wet summers here on my new farmette, as well as many more devastating insects. I have made the difficult decision to phase out my eggplant growing, as it has been so difficult to raise them for seed anymore. I will now be selling all my eggplants on LAST CHANCE  "first come first served" basis.

So if you want any of my rare eggplants now is the time.

A very diverse, interesting family.  Eggplant (S. Melongena) originated in India. Delicious fried or baked, great in chili, lasagna, eggplant makes a great vegetarian meat substitute. Plants can be light or dark green, or purple, tiny to very large leaves, some have sharp thorns, some are thornless, many types are very ornamental and beautiful!


All seed packs are $3.00 each

First of all, I have no idea why this is called "Baby" as it was a normal sized fruit on a regular sized, 3 to 3-1/2 foot tall plant. I was given the original seeds long ago in a seed trade and never had the time to grow them out until this summer. I am sorry for the awful photo here, I just didn't think to get it sooner and these were nearly past gone when I took it. The fruit were also much larger than this example, probably twice as large. This was a very early eggplant for its large size. It averaged 1 pound or more and up and was nearly a month earlier than any others. Nice blocky fruits were a standard deep purple color. Unlike in this awful photo they were nice and glossy and quite attractive. A good choice, I think for a market grower to beat out the competition on earliness. Firm white dense flesh was sweet. Calyx was deep purple too, no spines. So baby yourself this next season and get a nice early eggplant for all your cooking needs.

I just love this mostly ornamental eggplant! This eggplant comes from the western African nation of Burkina Faso, hence its name. It is probably too bitter in taste for most Westerners, although bitterness is prized in Africa and Asia. But if you want a showstopper ornamental eggplant, this is the one to choose.click to see fullsized photoThis year my plants were so huge they were 6 to 7 feet tall. When the season was over, I had to chop down and saw the plants like tress to remove them from the garden. So be sure to give these lots of room to grow huge. Absolutely covered in large ornamental violet blossoms followed by the exceedingly showy brilliant large red/orange fruit. As you can see from the photos they really resemble pumpkins. Be the first where you live to grow this incredibly exotic and lovely eggplant.

LAST CHANCE! ORDER NOW -INCREASED SEED QUANTITY~

I got this rare Asian Indian eggplant in a seed trade. I lived for 2 and half years in India, although most of that time in the Himalayan Mountains in the now beleaguered state of Kashmir. The Eggplants at the market in the city of Srinigar where I taught, were all kinds of shades of violet and white and so forth, everything but the deep purple I was used to. I was lucky enough to have travelled all over this fascinating country, where eggplant is widely grown and eaten. The Ratnayake Eggplant looks a bit similar to the "Udmalbet Indian Eggplant." I don't have any specific information about exactly where in India these come from. These were very prolific and the fruit was creamy white with lovely, wavy, deep purple stripes. Very beautiful fruit indeed. Nice sweet white flesh with no bitterness. Very good eating quality. The fruits grew about 8-13 inches long on a 3-foot high bushy plant. They had a green calyx. As with all my eggplants, I carefully keep them isolated, with agricultural row fabric, so they do not cross in any way. Be the first in your area to grow this rare and lovely eggplant or brinjal as the British and Indians call it. Europeans call them aubergine. Italians call them melanzane. You will call it delicious!
