Joe's Farm Organic Japanese Eggplant Plant, produces massive crops of slim, 10-inch long, purplish-black fruit. Like all eggplant, it loves warm weather but also does well in cooler climates and continues producing well into fall. Very productive. Well suited for containers. Sweet and succulent. Great for grilling and roasting. This is one of the long, thin eggplants you may see served in gourmet restaurants because the skin is thin and the flavor is sweet and mild. Fruit is 7″-9″ long.
