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 parmesan. We also canned many jars of caponata. 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.

Our plants are sustainably raised in our own potting mix. We use only organic fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.

Our tomato plants are shipped in individual 3" deep pots. They are 4 to 10 inches tall and are ready to be planted out in your garden.

We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.

We ship every Monday and Tuesday, from late March into June.

We are now closed for the 2014 season. Thank you to all of our wonderful customers! We will be back in January, 2015.

We produce all of our own seed, unlike most seed sellers. We never purchase bulk seeds and repackage them. You can be sure that you are getting top quality, healthy, and vigorous seeds from us, and that they were produced by us on our small farm in healthy soil.

We are licensed by the State of Missouri Department of Agriculture to sell plants (license #1931) and seed (license #149045) produced by us. We exceed the Federal minimum germination standards and post our germination test results with each variety

Quality, beauty, flavor, fun, and responsibility!
