EGGPLANTS $4.50 in 4″ pots
Just a few extra of each
– Ping Tung https://southernexposure.com/products/ping-tung-long-eggplant/
– Rosita https://southernexposure.com/products/rosita-eggplant/
– Violetta Lunga https://www.growitalian.com/eggplant-violetta-lunga-90-1/


I have a few dozen extra plants, not a few hundreds this year!

Potted plants $4.50 each in 4-5″ pots; rooted slips $3; slips $2 – from home-saved tubers. In excellent growing conditions, expect 8-10 lbs of tubers per EACH slip.
– Beauregard – reliable, high yielding variety. Crack-resistant roots and deep orange color with dry flesh. It can produce VERY large tubers (5lbs!) in good conditions – but those are still excellent for eating. Very versatile in the kitchen.
– All-purple – purple skin, purple flesh, a great keeper. Long Cylindrical tubers are set deeper than Beauregard so make sure to dig them up. If grown in pots, they’ll be a lot of them at the bottom of the pot. I prefer them steamed o set the gorgeous color. Roots are starchy, dry, slightly sweet, and store well.
– Carolina Ruby – red skin, dark orange flesh, moist & moderately sweet. I only have a few, and they are behind
