Eggplant Midnight Queen Hybrid

Eggplant Midnight Queen Hybrid

Rules Supreme Over All Other Eggplant!

55 DAYS Her Royal Majesty, exclusively from Gurney's, is the best eggplant for the home garden—after two years of testing and trialing, we know you'll agree! Unlike other eggplant, Midnight Queen's meaty, succulent , bright white flesh does not turn brown when cut and retains an attractive appearance. Never bitter, The Queen is sweet and delicious inside and out—yes, even her rich, glossy, purple-black skin is a culinary delight. Prepare an exquisite eggplant parm or try a unique, tasty eggplant jerky! 6-8" fruits can weigh in at over 1/2 lb. and hold up to freezing better than other varieties. Vigorous, hardy, easy-to-grow plants withstand drought, pests and disease. Slow-to-develop seed allows for a longer picking window. Even after other eggplant varieties slow and stop production, she will graciously continue to produce full-size fruit through the entire summer—long live The Queen! Approx. 30 seeds per packet
