My two eggplants share a pot on the Eastern side of my balcony. I planted the two seeds on November 28th almost three months ago so they certainly like taking their time. They probably don’t like sharing a smallish pot either. Next time I’ll give them more room.
They’ve sustained flea beetle attacks and caterpillar assaults….
high winds and heavy rains….
but miraculously the first fruit appeared this morning!
This long purple variety will be delicious chargrilled on the BBQ and made into a babaganoush.
