Eggplant are almost too pretty to eat!! However, they are delicious as well!
This variety is Listada De Gandia (Solanum melongena). Introduced in France from Spain circa 1850. The fruit get 8″ long on 2 foot plants. This delicious variety thrives in hot weather!
Presently I am growing Listada De Gandia in the hoop house which easily gets to 100° (F) and over.
