This is another one of those vegetables that I like because it is SO easy to grow
(at least it is down here in the Houston area).

Japanese or Asian Eggplant Beautiful Color

It's pretty much like traditional eggplant in taste and texture.
These grow a bit longer and narrower than the more traditional but they are just as tasty
(and in some cases, a bit milder and sweeter in flavor) and have a nice, thin skin, which helps with using them in your cooking.

I planted them on a whim 2 seasons ago in our small city garden and they just produced and produced constantly.  I only had two plants but I was pulling off one or two per day at one point.
It also seemed to be insect and disease resistant because I never had any problem with it.  The plants grew to about 3 1/2 feet tall.  My only regret is I wished I had planted more.

So, I've added this to our "must have" list of veggies we want at the farm.
Try them sometime, I'm sure you will love them.
