Fairy Tale eggplants are part of the “Hansel & Gretel, Fairytale Collection” family of baby eggplants that we also grow, and they are the color mix of the two; striped purple and white. These fruits and the plants they grow on couldn’t be cuter and more compact, with mature fruit measuring just about 4 inches long and growing in little clusters on fittingly small plants. Baby eggplants are having a bit of a hip culinary moment and are popular at restaurants baked or grilled whole and served cut side up like an adorable little eggplant canoe. Since eggplants take a bit of space to grow in the garden and also require a good amount of time we always recommend people grow these more culinary petite varieties because you cant get them easily at the grocery store, like you can the more traditional types.
