Eggplant, Thai Round
Eggplants are such a fun, easy, plant to grow. One plant will easily feed a family of four for a period long enough to eventually get tired of eating eggplants.
This heirloom Thai eggplant variety is disease resistant and will adapt to most growing conditions. Plants are vigorous growers that produce 2-inch round tender, green-skinned fruits with white stripes that have a delicate flavor. It’s like a cherry tomato in eggplant form.
Days to Maturity: 55-60 days
Plant size: 20-24” tall and wide

Culinary: Thai eggplants are commonly pickled or cooked in curries, noodles, rice dishes, and stews. They are also tasty when grilled, stir-fried, or made into a relish.
