Tonda di Manfredonia Heirloom Eggplant Seeds

OP. Heirloom from Italy. Extremely rare and endangered. We were given one plant by Abundant Acres, who had requested seed from the USDA seed bank. We grew our one plant two years ago, and loved the eggplant. It is large, roundish and squat, deep purple, and the quality is excellent. Just perfect for roasting and eggplant parmesian. We canned many jars of Caponata, too. We can find no information on the internet. It is that rare. Help us keep this variety from going extinct by growing a plant or two, saving seeds and spreading them around to other concerned growers. Germinated at 97% on 12/31/12.


Lifecycle:1    (0: N/A, 1: annual, 2: perennial, 3: biennial)
