This eggplant variety is a fun addition to the garden because of its unique size. Collected by the Gettles in central Thailand, where the natives refer to many colors of these small eggplant as “frog eggs.” Tiny fruits are the size and form of a cherry tomato, lavender splashed with cream. Very robust flavor, and super high yielding. The more you pick the small purple fruit the more the plant will produce, so harvest often. Unlike traditionally sized eggplants this plant is a bit more compact, with small leaves and a branching growth pattern.
