General Information: Slender, elongated eggplants are glossy with bright purple skin and white, tender, non-bitter flesh. Fruit can be sliced lengthwise for grilling or lightly frying, and tender skin does not need to be peeled. Sliced or diced fruit is great for a stir-fry or curry; its non-bitter flavor and tender texture will complement any sauce. Plants are upright and semi-spineless, so they are very easy and painless to harvest. Asian Delite is a great addition to any in-ground garden or large container.
