Cultivated in Asia for millennia, eggplant varieties that originate in Asia include many regional subgroups of Chinese, Japanese, and Thai provenance. The flavor of these types is slightly sweeter — a result of having fewer seeds — and more tender than the Italian types, but turns bitter if left to overripen. Johnny's Asian eggplant varieties have been selected for performance under cool weather conditions as well as heat stress — and many are also earlier to bear, resulting in a longer harvest period. Choose from a range of colors, sizes, and shapes.
