Eggplant bountiful

Post  greatgranny on 9/6/2016, 10:10 pm

This year I tried a new Eggplant.  It is Patio Baby.  As long as I keep harvesting it keeps making more.  I usually pick them when they are about 3-4 inches long.  I don't even peel them.  I think I will plant these again.  In the past I always had to do the salt thing to take away the bitterness.  Not this variety.

You must feel very happy that you found a veggie that you want to continue with.

I must remember that name, Patio Baby.

Thanks for sharing this, greatgranny! I love hearing about what varieties people love (and why.) I was considering growing an eggplant in a container next year - this seems like a good variety to try for that. I've made a note on my shopping/wish list. Very Happy

I forgot to say that the plants are so heavy with fruit that they are hanging over the edge of the box.  I think for next year I had better get a tomato cage just for them. 
Now, wondering what to do with so many at the end of the season.  Maybe I will slice and dehydrate them.

One year  I pickled them in a medley of carrots and zukes along with some store bought cauliflower.
