Started these seeds last January and shared seedlings with my neighbors. In August we were both blessed with a wealth of beautiful eggplants. Truly a miracle of nature. Vigorous plants, no insect damage, rabbits did enjoying gnawing on the young seedlings, but eventually they recovered and bore fruit.
