Details

Who says Mother Nature hasn't got a sense of humor? You really won't believe Easter Eggplant until you grow it and watch the fruit develop for yourself--it begins white, looking like a bunch of hen's eggs, and then matures to a deep yellow/orange! The petite plants can sport a dozen "eggs" in a season!

It is an uncommon delight for the summer garden, and a constant source of wonder to children and the young at heart!

These can be grown in containers (so you can place them strategically for best effect!) or in your garden or landscape. Very easy to grow!

Michigan Seeds grown on our farm Renegade Acres in Howell, MI!
