EGGPLANT (Solanum melongena) (80-90 days) — We were gifted several small white eggplants from a Burmese farmer and friend at a training farm in Kansas City, Kansas, and naturally we saved the seeds. The following year we planted the seeds at two locations. The first location produced white and green eggplants and the second location produced all green fruit. We saved the seeds from the green fruits at the second site and planted them following season and the plants produced all green fruits. This delicious eggplant will satisfy your taste buds and is a joy to watch grow. - The Buffalo Seed Company
