€˜Patio Baby€™, a prodigiously prolific dwarf eggplant, offers up a summerlong harvest, each plant producing 25 to 50 luscious babies. Aboard the patio, early-yielding All-America Selection makes a striking impression, compact 16-20" plants clustered with egg-shaped, 2-3" purple-black fruit. Loaded with rich, mild, sweet flavor, €˜Patio Baby€™s mini-fruits (never eaten raw) are delicious baked, roasted, or sautÃ©ed€”excelling as a side dish, or starring in salads or dips. Thornless leaves and calyxes make for painless harvesting. Small pale-lavender blooms appear in spring. Thriving in any climate, €˜Patio Baby€™ is a great choice for shorter growing seasons of the Northeast and Midwest. No staking required.
