'Orient Express'

An eggplant that just won’t quit! Talk about dependable, this high-yielding Asian eggplant will produce baskets full to share with your friends and family. Early producing with 10” long glossy, deep purple (almost black) fruit. A real smooth operator, as handsome in the garden as it is in the kitchen. The flavor is tender and delicate. Cooks up quickly for those busy weekday dinners. Can tolerate temperature extremes and heat stress. Be careful to not over fertilize. Too much nitrogen will result in a foliage heavy plant and no fruit.
