Eggplant Garden Starter 3.5″
Most commonly purple, this spongy, absorbent fruit is used all over the world. Like the tomato, its skin and seeds can be eaten, but, like the potato, it is usually eaten cooked. Eggplant is nutritionally low in macronutrient and microcutrient content, but the capability of the fruit to absorb oils and flavors into its flesh through cooking expands its use in culinary arts. Eggplant is often cultivated as a tender or half-hardy annual in temperate climates. The stem is often spined and, depending on the cultivar, the flowers can be white to purple in color growing over garden and retainer walls extremely well. Brighten up your garden with these adept garden starters!
