Aubergine Gretel 10 seeds
Eggplant White
F1 variety AAS winner and ideal to grow alongside Aubergine Hansel
55 days from transplanting. These glossy ivory fruits are ready for picking when just 3 to 4 inches long, making splendid baby veg a gourmet treat you MUST try. However, unlike others, Gretel won't grow tough and dry as it gets longer. If you don't want to harvest the entire crop young, take the 55-day maturity date as a starting point, and continue to harvest when and as you like for several more weeks! The fruit will be larger but no less succulent and bitter-free.

Nearly seedless, this eggplant is perfect for frying or baking. It appears in clusters of 3 to 6 on plants just 3 feet high and 2 1/2 feet wide -- perfect for containers as well as the sunny garden! Stake or cage the plants to hold up their huge bounty of fruit, then sit back and enjoy eggplant fresh from the garden whenever you like.
