Growing Eggplants, the King of Vegetables

Growing eggplants will provide more than just productive vegetables during the heat of the summer; These Aubergines, known as the King of Vegetables, also make an attractive addition to garden borders and flowerbeds.

Gardeners looking for an eggplant that makes a fashion statement should try Listada de Gandia. This Spanish heirloom produces 7-inch-long egg-shaped fruit, striped a striking royal purple and white.
