JAPANESE ASIAN EGGPLANT

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).

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.
