Super high yields

By: on 22 March 2016
I have these early long purples in my garden at the moment I cant believe how many fruits we are getting. Its hard to keep up. They are quite small though, I mean we eat 2 each per meal.

Grow well

These tend to be very small eggplants, maybe only 10-15cm maximum before they start to go yellow and overripe, so you have to get them off early. Otherwise the yield is high and the fruit is delicious!
