Eggplant 'Calliope'

Calliope Eggplant

  • Loves the sun
  • Edible vegitables
One of the more difficult things about growing Eggplant is the plants tend to be a little mean. They are usually well protected by spines on the plants and the fruit calex meaning that, sometimes, you have to bleed a little to get at the those tasty fruit. 'Calliope' makes Eggplant growing fun again since it is totally devoid of those pesky spines and because it has one of the happiest looking Eggplant fruit you'll ever see! You'll ooh and aah over the 2 to 4 inch long oval bright purple fruit with the brilliant pattern of white streaks. You'll also rave about the productivity of this little beauty that will gives you baskets of sweet looking fruit a mere 64 days after transplanting!
