75 days. [Heirloom from France about 1850.] This egg-shaped Italian beauty has 5-6" fruits, purple with irregular white stripes. A unique eggplant pleasing to both the eye and the palate. Drought-tolerant, sets fruit well under high heat. Does best in areas with a long warm growing season. Thin skin does not need to be peeled for cooking. #45401 Pkt.
