It’s a fact of life, “fresh is best”. There is simply no better way of having fresher vegetables packed with nutrients and fibre, than harvesting them right from your very own garden. Pohlmans Gourmet Vegetables® Eggplant Patio is specifically bred for patio and pot gardening. A high yielding eggplant which produces shiny dark purple fruit that is almost round. Pick while as small as a ping pong balls or let them mature to the size of a tennis ball. Pick fruit regularly to prolong harvest. Use eggplant in Indian cuisine, lasagne, moussaka, or cut and fry.
