Tired and bored of the same old, dark purple eggplants that you’ve been purchasing from the local grocer? There are more choices and variety than you may have imagined, but the catch is that you’ll have to grow these babies yourself.
Here’s a collection of eggplants that are anything but normal or routine. The long and slender green fruits are “Thai Long Green”. The sweet and tender, long lavender eggplants are fruits from the “Ping Tung” variety.
“Listada De Gandia” is the purple and white stripped Italian beauty. Then there are three different purple fruited eggplants including “Black Champion” and “Gitana.” And finally, there’s one of my personal favorites, the huge radiant green, oval-shaped fruit of the variety called “Green Giant.”
That’s just the beginning, there are more fruits of other heirloom eggplant varieties in additional sizes, shapes, and colors that I’ll be sharing as the season progresses.
