Purchased from ebay seller Eerene who is located in Alexandra Hills, QLD only 6 km from me.

* * MINI RED SKIN * * BABY eggplant

Easy to grow, perfect for BEGINNER GARDENERS, STUNNING in full fruit GOURMET grade variety

It is though unlikely to be found even in boutique green grocers for it hasn't got the thick tough skin necessary for commercial handling...

Scientific studies have shown that baby vegetables tend to contain higher level of nutrients (hence health benefits) than the regular-sized ones.

This unique eye-catching baby eggplant is truly a GREAT VALUE :

Densely covered with 3-5 cm long, cacao-bean or oval shaped fruit, once it reaches maturity (quicker than regular -sized varieties) it just keeps producing literally hundreds of delicious bite-sized eggplants!-

GREEN , YELLOW , ORANGE and RED – all on one bush, in different stages of ripening. The flesh is very TENDER, firm and SILKY smooth. SWEETER than a regular eggplant .

The skin stays bright red even when cooked, making this variety ideal for
