Vegetables Eggplant
The fruits of six of Johnny's eggplant varieties. There is a range of colors, from deep purple, to variegated, to white.
Eggplant is a highly diverse crop widely cultivated around the globe. While eggplant generally grows best in dependably warm and settled weather, we trial eggplant varieties for performance in less favorable conditions, as well as for superior flavor and appearance. We also identify which varieties are best for field, greenhouse, and container production. Our greenhouse eggplants have been bred to thrive under greenhouse growing conditions (at least some heat is recommended for these varieties, but they will also grow well in hoophouses in areas with mild weather). To compare key characteristics, colors and sizes, refer to our Eggplant Variety Comparison Chart.
