Eggplant Easter Egg 20 Seeds
This is the Ovigerum, an ornamental Eggplant, and the fruit it produces looks just like real eggs. These miniature eggplants are approximately the size of a large chicken egg. When they first come on they're white, just like an egg. And as they mature they turn different shades of yellow. So it really does look like you have a colorful Easter Egg tree growing in your garden!
The Easter Egg Plant grows well outdoors in your garden and they also do very well standing alone in containers.
Because they're just like other eggplants you'll have Easter Eggs the very first year and if you save one or two you can harvest the seeds for planting again next year.
Some varieties with slim, long fruit such as Asian Bride produce their fruit earlier. Mulch well and keep well watered. May need staking
