This is the story of my first Patio Baby Mini Eggplant.
- Plant Size: 10 to 24 inches tall
- Fruit Size: 2″ – 3″ tall
- Matures: 45 days
- Spacing: 24 inches apart
- Light: Full sun
I wanted an eggplant for the pretty purple flowers 🙂 I chose the Patio Baby Mini Eggplant because of the “never bitter” claim. Turns out some eggplants get bitter if you don’t pick them as soon as they start to get ripe. With these, I should be able to check once or twice a week for fruit.
May 4: First Bloom
I planted eggplant, cherry tomatoes, squash, zucchini, and cucumbers on April 17, 2017. About 2 1/2 weeks later, I saw my first beautiful purple eggplant bloom.
May 12? : Pretty Flowers
It has been almost a month since I planted. I am seeing more lovely purple flowers with vivid yellow centers. So pretty. I am still waiting on the fruit!

June 3, 2017: Looks like we will have even more to grill next weekend!
Yummy, eggplant Parmesan!
