EGGPLANT (Solanum melongena) (60-70 days)—
"This dark beauty is a good producer and has a habit of changing its form and color when grown in different levels of light intensity. This mysterious behaving eggplant originating from Sudan and is great in the traditional Sudanese dish Salata Aswad, look it up and try it. In addition, it is a great all-purpose eggplant." -Buffalo Seed Company
