Casper Hybrid Eggplant

Excellent Mild Flavor


A flavor favorite from our trials! Excellent mild, non-bitter, mushroom-like flavor and silky texture. Produces high yields of 5- to 6-in. fruits with ivory-white skin. Prefers cooler conditions than many eggplant varieties, making it a good choice for short-season gardeners. Approx. 70 DAYS.
  • Zone 3 - 9 annual
  • Height 22 - 38 inches
  • Germination 8 - 10 days at 85 degrees F.
  • Shade Required Full sun.
