I count 21 little eggplants, at various stages, between just two (2!!!) unbelievably productive plants. AND, there are about 30 more blossoms on top. The variety is called "Little Fingers". It's an Asian (Thai, maybe?) variety of eggplant, and that's all I know. As you can see, the fruit is shaped like zucchini. The one on the bottom is just about ready to be picked. I bought these puppies as very small, rather sad looking seedlings at the farmer's market; they struggled mightily in the long, cold spring we had. They are among the group of about four vegetables I didn't start from seed this year.
I'm stunned. Simply stunned.
I've never grown eggplant before, but I will definitely grow eggplant next year.
