So, why did I plant an eggplant? Simply for one reason.
They are beautiful plants. Beautiful leaves. Beautiful blossoms. Beautiful fruits.
I grew Dusky a few years ago:
|beautiful plant with beautiful leaves|
|beautiful fruits and a Doodle|
|lots and lots of beautiful fruits|
So, I got a Patio Baby! Isn't that a cute name? It grows only 24" or so high, with fruits about 2" long. Perfect for a the large ceramic pot on my deck.
What will I do with the beautiful fruits? I'll take them to work and leave them on the employee break room table of course! I won't be eating them, that's for sure!
