Traviata is a vigorous, Italian style eggplant with an upright and well balanced growth habit. It sets fruit steadily throughout the growing season, providing the potential for huge yields, even in marginal weather conditions. The shiny, nearly black teardrop shaped fruits are uniform and attractive, six - eight inches in length, weighing about 4 oz. each. Traviata can be grown in greenhouses or the open field. 55-60 days.
