Fairy Tale eggplants are borne on petite plants with remarkable productivity. The decorative miniature eggplants are white with violet/purple stripes. The fruit is sweet, non-bitter, with a tender skin and few seeds. The elongated oval eggplants can be picked when quite small at 1-2 ounces, or they can be left on the plant until double the weight, yet the flavor and tenderness remain. Fairy Tale eggplants are recommended for marinating and grilling whole. The plants reach only 2-1/2 feet tall and wide, perfect for container gardening. A 2005 All-America Selections winner. 49 days.
