Container friendly, rooftop friendly, non bitter eggplants. Recommended.
Container friendly, rooftop friendly, awesome flavor. My favorite seed of 2011, highly recommended.
Container friendly, rooftop friendly, sweet & crunchy fruit. Recommended.
Container friendly, rooftop friendly, very productive plants, unfortunately their flavor was unremarkable.
