More Aubergine varieties

Long purple

Very popular variety, long puple as the name suggests, produces long dark fruits with excellent flavour. Not a heavy cropper, a single plant should be limited to 4 or 5 fruits which will be of medium size. Hierloom or heritage variety introduced in 1905.


Very reliable variety that produces high yields of slender dark fruits. Plants are large and sturdy enabling them to hold up fruits well. Early maturing variety that is able to tolerate lower temperatures than other varieties. Limit to 8 fruits per plant for best results. Definately the variety of choice for first time aubergine/eggplant growers.
