As eye catching in the kitchen as in the garden! Tastes as good as they look! A favorite for edible landscaping! Vivid purple with delicate stripes, resembling streaking stars across the night sky! 30" H plants produce lovely 3-4" oblong sweet, tender fruits - classic eggplant flavor. Harvest young fruit for best flavor. Green calyx. Excellent for containers or in the garden.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
